LB Steak's Saint Vincent’s Wine Flight Week Tasting Menu with Tasting Notes

Pinot Noir ($18.00)
In a cooler region Pinot Noir yields notes of red cherry, cranberry and pomegranate, from Burgundy you also get notes of stones and leaves. As you move to warmer climate the wine brings a rich cherry pie and red plum character. If Burgundy and California were to have kids it would be Oregon in regards to Pinot Noir.
