My Favorite New Pinot Noir Wine – Wan Fiore Project – A Fashionable Pick

If you are looking for a new wine that is great as a gift or for a nice New York Strip check out one of my favorite new wines.

I am usually a big Champagne and Rose drinker, but this Pinot Noir has a nice intense cherry flavor that adds just the right compliment to my Mastro’s New York Strip steak cooked medium rare with horseradish cream. Yep, it is winter and it is always nice to cozy up to a full bodied red with a steak.

Here is a little info about it. Check out the Wan Fiore Project website here to order now.

Here is a review of their 2010 Wan Fiore CP wine from The Pinot Report.

Wan Fiore Project

The Wan Fiore project is the collaboration of Raymond Wan and Robert Fiore and brings together two friends from different backgrounds who share a love and passion for fine wines. Raymond Wan, with a background in finance and sales, learned his hands-on vineyard skills as an intern at Clos Pepe Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. It was there he conceived of the idea of creating his own wine venture. Robert Fiore came from a science background and took extension courses at UC Davis to learn the mix of skills needed to make fine wine. Because of Raymond’s connection with Clos Pepe, they were able to make a Clos Pepe Pinot in 2009 and 2010. Great concept and definitely a label to watch.
