This is the best wine to encourage your wife into the world of red wine, because it is sweet for her and will taste great for you as well.

2004 Carmen Pinot Noir
by: Peter

I work for a wine retailer and saw 3 bottles of Carmen Pinot Noir sitting looking very lonely on the shelf with very battered labels.

I've been drinking all the Pinot Noir wines that my company retail for the last 2 months, ranging from £6 - £20. This was a surprise! I checked our pc to see when we last bought this and it was in 2005! This had sat on the shelf for 4 years.

I expected it to be terrible but was pleasantly surprised. Beautifully soft as a Pinot should be with a slightly spicy finish. Not to OTT with tannins either.

All this for £6!!! Pity it can't be ordered anymore. Not the best P.N. I've tasted but for the money, bloody great.

Anyone tried a Chilean Pinot Noir?
by: Darby

Thanks Alberto. I'm not sure I want to encourage my wife to drink red wine, Then I'd only get half a bottle.

This wine is from Chile, better known for its Bordeaux varieties including cabernet sauvignon, merlot and carmere.

I've not tried this wine myself. Other Vinodiversity readers may like to comment.
