Pinot Noir produces light-colored, medium-bodied, and low-tannin wines and can go through periods of unpredictable aging. This characteristic is associated with its possession of low phenolic compounds quantities and thin skins. Young Pinot noir wines exhibit fruity scents of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries but as it develops, more vegetal and barnyard aromas may emerge. Diligent canopy management is required during the grape’s cultivation as the grape is susceptible to viticultural hazards.
