Tasting Notes

The 2017 Master of None from BlankBottle is intriguing and comes through with the sweetness of the sapodilla fruit.

On the mouth it is very elegant. Pleasant and incredibly drinkable.

The finish is medium long.

Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.

Roussanne is a white wine grape that originated in France’s Rhône wine region and is commonly blended with Marsanne. Apart from Marsanne, it is the only other white variety permitted in the appellations of Crozes-Hermitage AOC, Hermitage AOC, and Saint-Joseph AOC in the northern Rhône. It is one of six white grapes permitted in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC in the southern Rhône, where it can be blended into red wines. Roussanne is also grown in New World wine-growing regions like California, Washington, Texas, South Africa, and Australia, as well as European wine-growing regions like Crete, Tuscany, and Spain.
