Wine List for the Pinot Noir Tasting:
Contat-Grange Maranges 1er Cru le Clos Des Loyeres 2010 Bourgogne, France
The Clos des Loyeres 1er Cru is a well developed wine with medium weight and an overall balance of earth and fruit. Silky and refined tannins show through the core of fruit and spice.
J.K. Carriere Provocateur Pinot Noir 2011 Willamette Valley, OR
A translucent ruby red, this wine aromatically is dark cherry with dust and spice. In the mouth it’s a starter’s pistol on a race to vibrancy, whereby mouthwatering acidity puts serious legs under red and black fruits and propels them across the middle distance of your palate.
Quinta Del Mar Pinot Noir 2011 San Luis Obispo, CA
Our wines have cherry/red plum colors with flavors of black and red fruits, smooth tannins, and a distinct earthiness with silky, luscious textures.
Taft Street Pinot Noir 2012 Russian River, CA
This 2012 Taft Street Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has the distinct cherry fruit flavors and fine structure typical of the Russian River appellation. A cool season coupled with corresponding low yields produced some extraordinary wine.
Lupine Pinot Noir 2009 Monterey County, CA
Sweet, fresh, bright and slightly tart with flavors of bing cherry, pomegranate, plum, cedar and mild forest floor.
