The obsessor’s wine of choice: PINOT NOIR

The International Celebration of Pinot Noir in McMinnville, Oregon

Pinot Noir is a little like that old boyfriend whose memory you can’t seem to shake.  Sure, you’ve moved on – you’re TOTALLY into Rhones, now – but you’d be lying if you said you don’t reminisce about Pinot all the time every now and then. 

And what makes Pinot Noir the obsessor’s wine of choice?  This is a well-worn question.  Pinot is notoriously difficult to grow and vinify, and what’s worse, it rarely comes out of the bottle as anything better than average.  But when it does?  Oh, baby.  It’s sort of like flying first class.  Once you do it, you can never go back to coach.  The food-friendliness and endless complexity of this variety are simply unsurpassed.

So in the spirit of obsession, we at PSPR have compiled a list of festivals for the Pinot-lovers among us.  Happy sipping!
