Pinot Evil NV Pinot Noir (France)
Good Friday ... lunch time. I have a 100ml bottle of Pinot Evil, a wine imported by a California winery from France (Vin de Pays de L'ile de Beaune). Is it Pinot Noir? In light of recent Gallo actions and legal battles against the French, only the growers know for sure. This wine has a beautiful bright red colour, lots of cherry on the nose and lots of cherry on the palate - there's plenty of sweet red fruit throughout. Light, easy and fruity with an alcohol level of only 12.5% so it's a perfect lunch time quaff; and the best part of it is, later on I will Pee No Evil and medically that's a good thing.
