October 2014 Reading & Tasting


This month, I selected a controversial read: Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl, Lena's personal voyage of self-discovery and navigating the trial and tribulations of growing up. 


As for wine, let's go for a classic wine we haven't covered yet, Pinot Noir. Good Pinot Noir gets respect in the wine world because its grapes are very difficult to cultivate and produce into wine. It's usually a fairly complex wine, with low tannins and lighter in color than other red wines. Beware: good pinot is really fantastic, but bad pinot is REALLY horrible. If you're looking for a more affordable Pinot Noir (they tend to be one the expensive side), I recommend The Pinot Project. For the price, it's a solid wine.
