If Yogi Berra Was a Wine Writer

In honor of the start of another baseball season, I thought it would be interesting to see how Yogi Berra might write about Pinot Noir. The former Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees, became known for his “Yogi-isms.”

“If Pinot Noir were perfect, it wouldn’t be.”

“When I drink a great Pinot Noir, it’s déjà vu all over again.”

“You can taste a lot by tasting.”

“If the people don’t want to come to the winery, nobody’s going to stop them.”

“I didn’t really drink all the Pinot Noir I drank.”

Speaking about a new Pinot Noir release: “An overwhelming underdog.”

Commenting about a new cult Pinot Noir winery: “No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.”

And finally, when asked when to pick Pinot Noir: “It ain’t over ‘till it’s over.”
