Warm days, cool nights and a rolling blanket of coastal fog encourage distinct characteristics to develop in the luscious Pinot noir grapes grown in California’s Russian River Valley, making the region a celebrated source of this world-class varietal. note the aromas and flavors of red currant, raspberry and boysenberry with subtle hints of lavender, mushroom and oak. The balanced flavors are the perfect complement to red meat and earthy vegetables, like those in Kale and Scallion negimaki, made with beef tenderloin, red miso and toasted sesame oil.Look for recipe on www.foodandwine.com
Light and smooth. Maybe a little bland. Good though.
Little fruity, light, an easy drink.
Very good at Johnies Hide Away
A little dry but very tasty
