Variety/Blend: Pinot Noir Vintage: 2014 Alcohol: 13.5% Region: San Luis Obispo County Recommended Pairing: I Don’t Feel Like Dancing by Scissor Sisters Pinot Noir has a great reputation.

It’s labeled as a red table wine, but this classy red blend ain’t no frumpy “pass the wine, Aunt Jo, you’ve had four glasses, and the main course hasn’t even come yet” table wine. This wine knows how to properly shave its asshole with just one mirror instead of two.
