Wine Talk 5/2!
Wines of the Week 5/2!
With "big red" weather behind us and rosé weather just ahead, what's better than a Pinot? These are all beautifully made and represent incredible value, each at their own price point. Big enough to pair with a burger or ribs, but work well with chicken or salmon.
2014 Villa Blanche Pinot Noir
From Southern France. This is a lively, medium-bodied
Pinot with more oomph than most Bourgognes at twice the price!
The 100 % Pinot grapes are carefully sourced and blended by producers Calmel and Joseph to create a wine that is elegant and refreshing. Ripe cherries and black currants on the palate with a surprising floral minty finish. On sale $11.99
2014 Line 39 Pinot Noir
Here's what Wine Enthusiast said after awarding this Pinot 90 points: "A tasty vein of cranberry and raspberry runs from the nose to the palate and lingers on the finish, giving this value-priced wine focus and vibrance. It has plenty of fresh acidity, fine tannins and good depth of flavor. Best Buy." We Agree! On sale $8.99
2014 Patricia Green Cellars Reserve Pinot Noir
If you know about Willamette Pinots you know Patricia Green Cellars. Its weight and density totally belies its price point, but at the same time maintains a beautiful red-fruited tone. This is a gem! A great value at $19.99.
