Happy Friday! (and hurray for Post #50 on http://www.lehauteeye.com)
A friend recently asked me about some Pinot Noir selection for her wedding reception, so I quickly pulled up my favorite and easy Pinot Noirs to grab anytime. Here is the list, hopefully they make it to your table sometime soon – or maybe today!
Mark West Pinot Noir – this is the most popular Pinot Noir sold in the US, and while it may be cheap on your budget, it delivered full fruit flavor in a light package.
A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir – This Willamette Valley wine is a great find for the price, when looking for a flavorful and light Oregon Pinot. I featured A to Z Wineworks last week as well, but this time it’s for their best selection – a delicious Pinot Noir you can find at any wine shop. It’s fruity, bold and a little spicy, with tannins in full effect.

90+ Cellars Pinot Noirs (all varietials) – I love these wines in general, and the concept, to bring the best wines to any table (Saturday Nigh Taste, Tuesday Night Prices or so their website claims). I have tried a few of the 90+ Pinot Noirs, and find them all pretty awesome. They are rich and fruity, and usually steel fermented for a softer taste.
French Pinots – these tend to be softer overall, as they spend less time in oak and more time at your table in France. You cannot go wrong with a French pinot in general!
Cheers to Friday and a haute wine weekend ahead!
