grape: Pinot Noir. Obviously, Pinot Noir is a red-skinned grape but with a Blanc de Noir (“white of black”) they don’t leave it on its red skins so the juice (and ensuing wine) is white. Cool, right?
producer: Paul Anheuser
yum factors: I had this at a tasting – it was the first wine I tasted and I loved it, and then when I circled back later on I loved it even more in comparison to all the other wines I’d sampled. It’s a mind bender because it’s Pinot Noir but white – still has some Pinot Noir flavors like cherry (but fleshy, ripe white cherry, not red or black) and maybe even some ripe strawberry. But it also had this awesome almond-skin flavor under it all. HIGHLY recommend!
price: $12 – killer value for this yummy wine!
