Many winemakers call Pinot Noir “the heartbreak grape” because it is so delicate. The back label of Pinot Evil refers to this characteristic, since its thin skin is easily affected by pests, disease and temperature changes.
Pinot is French for pinecone and describes the shape of the grape clusters on the vine. Pinot Noir is one of the Noble Grapes—along with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah—in the red‑black grape family.
The smooth, silky taste of Pinot Evil is nice for sipping but also complements mild red meats, soft cheeses or dark chocolate.
The local vendor for the wine is Republic National Distributing Company. It has been available at McGuire’s in Destin, but it would be our pleasure to serve you a glass or bottle at the Twisted Grape Wine Bar in Shalimar.
