Taco Bell Jalapeno Noir Wine: Taste Test Verdict (Video)

Taco Bell just launched a new wine called Jalapeno Noir, a Pinot Noir produced by the boutique Queenston Mile Vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Is this a perfect pairing or marketing mistake?

Watch the video above to find out and let me know what you think of this combo in the comments below please.

Cheers,

Natalie

We love saying “cheesy chalupa”…rolls off your tongue like the wine!

🍷 Andrea Shapiro

It’s really awesome that it is sold through Taco Bell too, a new revolution for wine sales. Many restaurants have adapted to selling wines with take out meals. Always a plus!

I wonder if other chains will follow suit or if the winery plans to create another wine for Taco Bell’s … say burritos?

.

🍷Christine Elder-Archer

I’ll say won’t be long for other chains to follow. Bet will be successful

🍷Adele Ashby

We had a rose with frozen pizza last night that went surprising well

🍷Heather Proctor

Hey Adele, that’s a good idea! I’m doing pizza tonight…

🍷Andrew Johnston

Maybe crack open a bottle of Petit-Village from Pomerol to young but like to try one of my bordeaux futures

🍷Jim Logan

Never though I would see Taco Bell wine.

🍷Tracy Stegall

🍷Lorraine Sabin

From north Toronto. When I first heard about this wine I thought it was a joke!

.

🍷Steven Weinstein

 for Queenston, what is the residual sugar of the PN? If low, is it at the level of non-fermentable sugars?

🍷Tracy Stegall

The creamy cheese with the tiny little kick… Pinot makes sense….

.

🍷Jim Logan

Wonder if we will see a golfer Dustin Johnson wine Wayne Gretzky’s future son in law. Mike Wier and several other pro golfers have labels

🍷Darryn Varey

Looking forward to this….I’m betting the cab wont go as well with the chalupa

🍷Michael Juergensen

Enjoying Cotes du Rhone watching this interesting tasting with an aged cheddar. Watching from SW Florida!

🍷Pamela Scerba

Live then replay for the beginning. Will this wine be available in the USA?

🍷Gilman Mucaj

I have problems pairing wine with spicy fod: they normaly do a diservice to the wine in mos ocations

🍷Lorraine Sabin

Hoping when I go to NOTL in Oct they have more
🙂

🍷Christine Elder-Archer

🍷Steven Weinstein

Is the acidity of the PN greater than the Merlot?

🍷Andrea Shapiro

Natalie, is the cheesy chalupa very spicy? (heat-wise?)

🍷Jenn Havers

 I’m weirdly excited for this!! yay!

🍷Christine Elder-Archer

– agree! Such shift in my wine/ food pairing… I agree with Riesling!

🍷Dawn Mertzer McGee

Live from the Boston area. Um, no, it’s really unlikely that I’ll have the tb chalupa, but this sounded amusing and I’m curious to hear about the wine. Gotta love the marketing technique!

.

🍷Adele Ashby

Jalapeño noir, are there notes of spice?

🍷Tracy Stegall

What would you typically pair with cumin and chile powder?

🍷Donnah Whitaker

I missed the intro, who makes the wine you just tasted?
