Quote of Note – Pinot noir

karen-mcneilOn Pinot noir:

“It’s the most feminine of the reds. It’s not rough or coarse or powerful, but it is hedonistic. The aroma and the flavor are silken and sexy. It has the living aroma of a lightly sweaty man – he’s run one mile, not five – its texture is like silk, and its flavor is like tasting the Earth itself.”

- Karen MacNeil
