If you’re a Pinot Noir fan, or want to try it but are intimidated by the cost, you owe it to yourself to give Kudos Pinot Noir a try. From Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley growing region, this wine tastes absolutely incredible, especially when you consider the price point. We paid a mere fifteen bucks for this baby, and I’m here to tell you it tastes nothing like you’d expect a $15 Pinot Noir to taste. It’s complex and not watery and insipid like some lower range Pinots tend to be. If you’re a fan of sweet wines, you’ll find this one a little dry for your taste.
I drank it alongside chicken fried rice from our local Asian restaurant, and the Pinot’s earthy flavor really complemented the smokiness of the fried rice. It didn’t taste that great with the egg drop soup, but was fabulous with the fortune cookie…which was not MUCH of a fortune cookie. Unfortunately, I threw the fortune away so I can’t recall exactly what it said, but it was more of a statement and definitely not a fortune. I hate it when they do that!
Anyway…. Kudos is an amazingly friendly wine when it comes to food pairing. I really think it could match well with most anything. Hell, give it a whirl. Try the Kudos, and then tell your friends.
