Pinot Noir - (Pee-noe Nwahr)

Classic red grape, widely acceptes as one of the world's best. Burgundy is its home, and it has proven difficult to grow and vinify well elsewhere, but California and Oregon increasingly hit the mark (albeit with usually a somewhat different style), and wine makers in many other parts of the world are still trying. At its peak, it makes wines of incredible complexity, difficult to describe (although cherries and "earthy" qualities are typical), known as much for its "velvety" texture as its flavor.
