About This Wine
Popular Wines Made From Pinot Noir Varietal Grapes:
- Pinot Negro
- Red Burgundy
A good Pinot Noir is one of the safest red wines, along with Merlot, to serve to a big group of people.
These wines have flavors of ripe red berries, sweet black cherries, mushrooms and what sommeliers call forest floor, that smell you get from freshly fallen damp leaves.
Pinot Noir was born in the Burgundy region of France, and it’s in Burgundy where the best Pinot Noir is still produced. Like many other regions of France, Pinot Noir producers do not refer to their Pinot Noir wine as Pinot Noir, but instead call it red Burgundy, after the region where it’s made.
Taste: Delicate savoury aromas and red fruit flavors of cherry, strawberry, raspberry and plum are accompanied by additional complex flavors which can emerge as the wines age and mature. These additional flavors include fig, truffle, wood smoke and violets as well as forest floor and animal notes of mushroom and leather. Age can add great complexity to the best wines.
Tannin: Low to medium
Age: Most are best when young, while top quality wines develop great complexity with age.

Finishing Pinot Noir
I used to just use the juice as supplied by your kits but I now add oak chips and raisins during the first fermentation. I put the oak and raisins in cheese cloth bags and remove them before the second fermentation. I also rack two and sometimes 3 times before finishing the wine. Makes the wine to our taste a lot better.
So far so good
This is the third kit I’ve bought and they ones that have been bottled are very drinkable. The one problem I did have was on the last one the bottom flaps opened and the bag fell Luckily I broke its fall and it didn’t open. The top of the box was taped up so someone must have must have seen it was weakened but why they didn’t tape the bottom is beyond me. There are handles on the side of the box so it’s expected you you can lift from them. Had the bag broken it would have created a mess and I would at the least expected a refund. This
