More about Half Bottles of Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir tastes of cherries when young and is often quite surprisingly light.  As it ages it gets more earthy, savoury or umami in nature.  Like Merlot it is more approachable than Cabernet but is not as sweet or overtly fruity.  If it is so great why isn't it more popular?  Well it is pricey for one thing and its quality is hugely variable for another; you’re going to be disappointed more often with Pinot.  But when it's good, young or aged, it's very good. Half bottles of Pinot Noir are appealing straight away when opened but the good ones will change and get more complex if they are allowed to 'breathe' for awhile.
