The truth about Pinot Noirs

Pinot Noirs are known to be one of the lightest of the red wines that give of a delicate aroma of plums, blackberries, and vanilla.

This particular type of wine pairs best with red pasta sauces, game, goose, and light beef dishes. However, Pinot Noir is best served with cheese.



Tipping on wine

When ordering wine in a restaurant, unless the wine is extremely expensive, you should tip the same as you would on food: about 18 to 20 percent.

Usually you get more elaborate service as the cost of the wine increases.

Pairing Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignons pair nicely with dishes containing the flavorings of brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, or dill weed.

 This particular type of wine can also be served well with dishes containing radicchio, endive, or dark chocolate.

Cabernet Sauvignons should never be paired with spicy foods, blue or full flavored cheeses, or milk chocolate.
