DetailsThe exotic bouquet of Master Vintner™ Pinot Noir captures luscious aromas of ripe red fruits and spiced chocolate in six gallons of hand-crafted wine.
Rich flavors of cherry and tart raspberry merge with notes of dark, juicy currants and bright red strawberry to complement a luxurious, velvety mouthfeel. Pairs well with sharp cheese, pork, veal and salmon.
Age Master Vintner® Pinot Noir with oak (not included) to develop an elegant and intense full-bodied wine, deep with refined tannins and notes of coffee and tobacco.

4.5 / 5.023 ReviewsExcellent medium-body wineWe have been making a wide range of wines for more than 20 years, and I have to say, this Pinot is at the top of our list. Every time I take a first sip I am reminded how much I like this wine. Fruit-forward yet dry, pairs well with many different foods, soft yet well-balanced with good mouth-feel. An excellent wine for any occasion.January 7, 2019Flavorful with a little sweetnessLove love love this one! It's only the 2nd batch I've ever made and the first red. Had a little mess when adding the oak chips and the wine got a little overexcited. My husband and I typically don't care for red wine, but this was an instant hit for us! Not too sweet but lots of flavor right away! Going to have to lock it up if we want to try it aged!December 30, 2018Purchased
3 months agoGreat Pinot for the price.This is my second batch of this Pinot and if it turns out like the first, I’ll buy it again. This is an excellent wine that after 10 months is really starting to shine. A fantastic value.December 26, 2018Purchased
2 months agoLove this one!Very smooth with a nice cherry finish. Ours ended up at about 13% alcohol.November 23, 2018Purchased
6 months agoVery niceI made this about 4 months ago and it's still aging. Before bottling, of course I tasted it. Although it needs aging, I could tell by the depth and fruitiness this wine has that this is going to be a winner.July 18, 2018Purchased

8 months agoEasy to do. Just bottled it. What I tasted was goodMay 18, 2018Purchased
11 months agoAbsolutely loved itThis wine was excellent right out of the carboy and i would suggest it to anyone. Full bodied, and bursting with flavor, I couldn't keep it on the shelf. I was able to hide the last bottle away just to see what it would taste like with a little agingMay 2, 2018Purchased

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersWould it be ok to add sugar to increase the ABV to this kit?BEST ANSWER: I am not an expert, but you should be able to chaptalize this kit. I would research how-to and how much sugar to add. Be careful though, I had challenges degassing this kit.The description above mentions the use of oak chips for this wine “Pinot Noir with oak (not included)”. What oak chips and how much of them do you recommend using?BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what is NOT INCLUDED. We purchased this and the oak chips were included? We used what the kit contained. Sorry, we can't be of help with this.How long do these kits generally hold up for before using and what is the proper storage recommendation?
Also what is the juice concentration percentage on these Master Vintner kits?BEST ANSWER: At least 1 year if not longer without any negatives in the final wine. Out of direct light, below 70 degrees. These are 10 liter kits so there is more concentrate than in some - the percentage varies and the kits are not rated this way.would it be OK to add some oak spirals while fermenting or after? Would this hurt the flavor?BEST ANSWER: If you desired more oakiness, you could add some spirals to your secondary. Do so cautiously though, a small amount goes a long way.
