Top Pinot Noir Wine

My wine reviews include Pinot Noir wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These Pinot Noir wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great Pinot Noir wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of Pinot Noir wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Sileni The Plateau Pinot Noir 2011
Hawkes Bay, North Island, New Zealand
Rich cherry fruit that's not heavy but I also like that there's not too much acidity. Round and ready when you are. Medium- to full-bodied and luscious. Perfect for juicy roast chicken or the tarry darkness of grilled chicken. Pinot Noir food pairings: salmon steaks. Alcohol: 13.5%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2013‐2016  Scrumptious Seafood Wine  Price: $17.95 Score: 90/100

Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir 2008
V.Q.A., Niagara, Ontario, Canada
A beautifully concentrated wine in its rich flavors of ripe cherry and strawberry, yet ephemeral and supple in texture. This wine makes you want to dive into the glass head first. Alcohol: 11.5%  750 ml  Price: $19.95 Score: 90/100

Flat Rock Cellars Flat Rock Pinot Noir 2007
V.Q.A. Twenty Mile Bench, Ontario, Canada
Vintages Wine Panel: Flat Rock Cellars was started in 1999, with its first full vintage in 2003. In a very few years, it has emerged as a fine producer of pinot noir. This example shows pretty cherry, plum, earth and beetroot aromas and flavors. A layer of crisp acidity and gentle tannins add balance. My note: A lovely, balanced pinot with rich notes of black cherries and oak. Medium-to full-bodied. Flat Rock Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled lamb. Alcohol: 12%  Sweetness: Extra Dry  750 ml  Price: $19.95 Score: 90/100
