Kris Pinot Noir

Being locked out of your house on what is supposed to be the most romantic day of the year is never what one hopes for but it happened. And as I sat outside waiting for the locksmith and listening to my stomach rumble, all I could think about was the bottle of Kris Pinot Noir that was sitting on my counter, waiting to be indulged in.

Four hours and $60 later, I sat on the couch with my Valentine and drank the wine. Sure, I had missed dinner but I wasn’t going to let a little lockout stop me from enjoying a little Sam Cooke on vinyl along with a glass of Pinot Noir. I would fully celebrate tomorrow but tonight it was me, Cupid, my Valentine and Kris. What a perfect combination!

The wine was Italian and romantic. The label is colorful and fun, almost with the feel of a child’s art project. The color was a rich purple tone and it tasted like ripe berries ( mostly strawberry with a hint of raspberry). Had I been able to make the homemade Picatta I planned on cooking, the wine would’ve complimented it perfectly. It did, however, compliment my Minute Rice just so. I will be purchasing this wine again and pairing it with a heavier pasta such as Bolognese or Eggplant Parmesan. Reasonably priced ( $13)and a great treat for those who love Italian wine and a heavier Pinot, Kris is a great choice.
