A gift from a friend, I gave a pour to Snap Dragon Pinot Noir to accompany pizza and veggie antipasto from our favourite local Italian restaurant. Snap Dragon is a brand of the huge global wine and spirits company Diageo. They produce and market wines from around the world, a few of their numerous other brands are: Sterling Vineyards, Rosenblum Cellars, Provence Vineyards, Guinness, Crown Royal and Johnnie Walker.
Dark ruby red in colour with aromas of strawberry, dusty earth and toasted oak. Black cherry, leather and earth flavours merged into white peppercorn and traces of toasted oak in the compact finish. Approachable and easy drinking, this is a good value that pairs well with simple dishes.
Pinot Noir [I could not verify varietal percentage.]
