"Provocateur" is French for "troublemaker." J.K. Carriere's Provocateur Pinot noir shows Jim Prosser's troublemaker style. Dark and meaty, ready to drink, this is great value Pinot. Not much made, so order quickly.

Generous, rich stone fruit and smoked meat notes call for a custom ground burger on an outdoor grill. It's mouth watering and satisfying, with great balance. Provocateur finishes fresh and clean, so you're ready for another glass. You'll want some for now, and more for sharing with friends. - Jean
