Two Interesting Pinots

The two interesting Pinot Noirs I’ve tasted recently I want to share my opinion with you on.

The first one comes from Western Oregon, Eugene, King Estate Winery.

It’s a 4-star wine for me, the one you enjoy on a Wednesday night. Good with food, excellent on its own.  Red fruit aromas and balanced tannins make a great company for a relaxing evening with your loved one.

The second one is from Marlborough district in New Zealand.

Oyster Bay Pinot Noir  Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012 Oyster Bay New Zealand.

A perfect companion for your Thursday night evening. It’s not that smooth as the first wine, but anyway – a good, quality Pinot. I rank it as a 3-star wine. To be honest with you, I had more hopes and expectations to this specific winery and wine, after I tasted their Merlot in Aruba.

This Merlot is 5 stars: it’s smooth, well-balanced and with nice and pleasant aromas.

And of course, to enjoy a great bottle of wine, you need to have the perfect tools! To start with, a wine aerator wouldn’t be a bad idea, since it gives more air (oxygen) to your wine so that all those aromas can develop more. Can you imagine the wine was stuck in a bottle, with no air, for quite some time and it needs oxygen to open up and show you all its beauty!

This is a simple one, for young wines – Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer – Premium Aerating Pourer and Decanter Spout (Black).

And here is a fancier one, for older wines and for home use only, I would say – Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator.

I have both at home, and many others (in case I have a wine tasting evening and open several bottles of wine…).

What tools do you use to enjoy your wine?
