I still remember the first time that I remember drinking a Pinot Noir. Of course, it wasn't the first time that I ever had one, but it was the first time that I distinctly remember having one.

Since I love Beringer's 'Napa Valley' Chardonnay, I was willing to give their Pinot Noir at the same level a try.

And I am happy. This wine is very nice Pinot Noir, giving ample plum flavor, a little smoke and wood, and just the proper amount of spice while not killing you with too many tannins. The finish is long and the body is velvety. This is a wine fit for game meats, fowl, or anything grilled just right that has been marinated beforehand; no need to slather it with sauce afterward.

Being that I have essentially had every grade of Beringer Chardonnay from 'Napa Valley' and above, I am wondering what other delights they will unveil with this grape.
