Pinot for the party
Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara Pinot Noir
Grab, go and drink!
This is always a solid choice. The style is casual but not rustic. You won’t have any complaints if you serve this up at an evening grilling outdoors with some friends. This pinot is light enough to go really nicely with seafood so put some clams on that grill as well. An easy drinker for sure but that’s not to say it lacks complexity because it doesn’t. It’s got some cherry notes and a little bit of herb and spice. But mostly it’s just pleasing and fruit forward without being jammy. Have a few bottles of this on hand for when you have an impromptu get together.
