Taco Bell Jalapeno Noir Wine: Taste Test Verdict (Video)

Taco Bell just launched a new wine called Jalapeno Noir, a Pinot Noir produced by the boutique Queenston Mile Vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Is this a perfect pairing or marketing mistake?

Watch the video above to find out and let me know what you think of this combo in the comments below please.

Cheers,

Natalie

We love saying “cheesy chalupa”…rolls off your tongue like the wine!

🍷 Andrea Shapiro
It’s really awesome that it is sold through Taco Bell too, a new revolution for wine sales. Many restaurants have adapted to selling wines with take out meals. Always a plus!
.
🍷 Deborah Podurgiel
I wonder if other chains will follow suit or if the winery plans to create another wine for Taco Bell’s … say burritos?

 for Queenston, what is the residual sugar of the PN? If low, is it at the level of non-fermentable sugars?
