Flip Flop Wine Review Part Deux: Pinot Noir

Welcome to part two of my flipflop wine review. If you missed part one, please head over here to read up on flipflop wines and why they are such an awesome company, and to read my thoughts about their delicious and crisp Pinot Grigio. Today’s wine is the flipflop Pinot Noir.

Before I get into the review of the Pinot Noir I want to take a second and talk about wine, and why you should be drinking it if you’re not already. There are several great reasons to drink wine on a regular basis. Now remember, by regular basis I mean like one to two glasses a day, tops. I’m not talking downing an entire box of wine out of your bathtub in one sitting (I may or may not have done that at my bachelorette party. It’s possible that there may have been several boxes of wine and beer sitting in the bathtub at the hotel). Here are just a few good reasons to drink wine; red wine in particular:

  • It’s delicious.
  • It can help you feel more relaxed after a long day.
  • A glass of red wine a day is thought to improve cardiovascular health!
  • It’s a great way to complement a particular meal (see below for the best foods with which to pair flipflop Pinot Noir).
  • Did I mention it’s tasty?

Now that you know why you should have a glass of red wine a day, here is why you should have a glass of flipflop Pinot Noir a day.

Again with the adorable label. And purple happens to be my favorite color!

I’m not usually a red wine girl. It usually is too rich and dry for me, and I usually only sip on it and don’t often finish a glass. However, I found the flipflop Pinot Noir to be very pleasant, semi-sweet and easy to sip on! The smell is great, and the taste is even better. I like to pour myself a glass while I’m cooking. Something about drinking wine while I cook my fancy (A.K.A, mac & cheese) meals makes me feel sophisticated. Even if sometimes my wine glass is dirty and I am too lazy to wash it, so I drink it out of a mug. That still counts, right? On the scale from Dry to Sweet, the Pinot Noir falls between Dry and Medium-Dry. I think that’s why I like it so much; I just don’t have the palate or stomach for wine that is too dry! This is really delicious and I highly recommend it, especially if you enjoy red wine.

At $7.00 a bottle, and $84.00 a case this wine is a must-have to keep in stock to drink with meals or to give as an impromptu gift! Remember that each bottle of wine sold donates a pair of shoes to a child in need thanks to flipflops’ partnership with Soles4Souls!

No monetary compensation was received for this post. I was given a bottle of flipflop wine Pinot Noir to review. I promise that I am 21 years old and have been for *coughsixyearscough*. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% honest, and 100% my own.
