Pinot is a great red wine grape but can be difficult to work with. One of the most decadent wines ever produced, its deep hue and nuanced taste have earned it widespread praise. Its velvety taste and sophisticated berry aroma make it a welcome addition to any social gathering. Wines made from the Pinot Noir grape and the places where they are grown are honored on August 18th, National Pinot Noir Day. For this special day, we wanted to answer the most common questions about Pinot Noir wines.
What kind of glass should I use to serve pinot noir?
The Burgundy glass is best suited for medium-bodied red wines with a lighter body, such as Pinot Noir. This glass is shorter than the Bordeaux glass, but it has a larger bowl than the Bordeaux glass does. Because of this, the wine is directed to the tip of the tongue, allowing the drinker to appreciate the more subtle flavors.
How long does an open bottle of Pinot Noir last?
Red wines with a low level of tannins, such as pinot noir and merlot, will keep for two to three days, while red wines with a higher level of tannin should remain delightful for up to five days after being opened, provided that they are handled with care.

MAISON NOIR OPP PINOT NOIR
The 2020 Other People's Pinot is a traditional Oregon Pinot that is enjoyable and offers an excellent value for the price. It retains the distinctive qualities of the vineyards from which it was originally crafted. The flavor profile can be described as having earthy, spicy, floral, and herb-framed flavors of cherry with gingery wood spice tones. These flavors are surrounded by a herbaceous backdrop.
JOSEPH DROUHIN BOURGOGNE ROUGE
This is a wine that is brimming with allure. It has a nose filled with the aromas of red fruits such as wild strawberries, raspberries, and red currants, and its color is a brilliant ruby red. On the tongue, the wine is smooth, fruity, and reviving, with tannins that are not overpowering and a great deal of refinement.
NIA PINOT NOIR CALI 2020
A Pinot Noir from California with a long soaking process that gives it a rich and dark color. It has strong hints of bramble fruit and cherry cola, as well as a full body that comes from being exposed to the warm California sun.
COPAIN TOUS ENSEMBLE PINOT NOIR
The second wine from the Sonoma Coast appellation is the 2017 Tous Ensemble Pinot Noir. The goal of this blend is to make a wine that stays true to the Copain style by showing off the elegance of Pinot Noir but is easier to drink right away. Pomegranate and anise smell very strongly on the nose, and as the wine opens up, strawberry and black tea come out. This wine starts out smooth, but its fine-grained tannins and pleasant acidity give it tension.
JOSEPH DROUHIN CHOREY LES BEAUNE
A very nice red wine that is bright and clear. On the soft palate, the body is smooth, mellow, graceful, and round. With a hint of blackberry jam, the taste stays with you for a long time. As the wine ages, the wild blackberry smell takes over.
SEA SUN CALIFORNIA PINOT NOIR
This Pinot Noir comes from some of the best coastal areas, where breezes from the Pacific Ocean balance out the heat of the sun. These perfect conditions allow for a longer growing season, which produces a wine with many layers that appeals to a wide range of people. It smells like baked cherries, vanilla, and brown spice.
