Producing high quality Pinot Noir (pronounced as Pee-no Nwahr) has been dubbed by numerous wine growers as “the quest for the holy grail” due to the difficult and finicky nature of this grape varietal; however it can also produce some of the world’s most extraordinary red wines.  Classically, Pinot Noir is grown in Burgundy, France to make the world renowned wines of Pommard, Nuits-Saint Georges and Gevrey-Chambertin, but it has also found a second home in California and Oregon with unabated fervor. The usual flavor profile of Pinot Noir tends to have notes of cherries, strawberries and raspberries with a floral undertone. In Germany and Austria this grape varietal is also referred to as Spatburgunder.
