Pali Wine Co “Huntington” Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2017

Every time I have a sip of a Pali Pinot Noir it makes me smile. There’s a fair amount of Pinot that makes me furrow my brow contemplatively. But Pali is grin inducing every darn time. The reason is that the wines are forward, juicy, and generous. The 2017 Huntington Pinot bursts with character. It is so lively and effusive! I love the rosy nose and the delicate little hints of blood orange zest and Oolong tea underscoring all those fresh plucked petals. The palate bursts, just like the nose. Creamy kirsch and cassis lead the attack with a second line of macerated strawberries and pomegranate seeds backing them up. As the palate evolves lovely tertiary hints of tobacco leaf, anise, and cola begin to make appearances offering a layered finish that is grounded, sincere, and savory. It is a pleasure to sniff, swirl, and sip, each moment of air exposing more engaging style and character.
Food Pairing:
Thanksgiving is sure to look a little different this year for a lot of us. But one thing that won’t change is the way a great bottle of Pinot can compliment a diverse range of dishes. Whether you serve a traditional oven roasted turkey with stuffing and green beans or you go for something more avant garde like curried turkey soup with carrots and ginger, you can be confident that the Pali Huntington will be up to the task!

Domaine Sophie Cinier Bourgogne Pinot Noir “Le Clos” 2018

One taste of Sophie Cinier’s wines and I was hooked. The wines possess a remarkable sense of composure, surely the result of a fearless winemaker and beautiful fruit. The 2018 single vineyard “Le Clos” Pinot Noir is a lovely wine, ethereal without ever becoming shy or inaccessible. Seductive hints of violet and cola are just enough to peak your interest and quicken your pulse with the first swirl and sniff. The nose is demure, engaging without being flashy or forward, just like great Burgundy should be! The palate is lush and generous, rarely traits found in such affordable Burgundy. Cinier’s deft touch in the cellar allows for attractive plum, wild strawberry, and blueberry to make equally valuable contributions on the palate while impressive hints of rose, cola, and mineral-laden soil linger long on the finish. It is a rare privilege to be able to offer you a “good deal” on small production Burgundy like this and we couldn’t be more excited! Cheers!
Food Pairing:
Pinot Noir and Thanksgiving are a match made in heaven. The Thanksgiving table is replete with a wonderfully diverse assortment of family favorites. So you’ve got to find yourself a Red that has fresh, lively acidity. Because, if you don’t, your palate is going to get so saturated with all those rich, creamy, delicious food flavors that you’re gonna have to shut it down before you even have a chance to fix that second plate with the extra gravy. So, you don’t drink a massive Napa Cabernet. Instead, you reach for a sleek, refined Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Familia Pacheco Barrica Jumilla 2018

With the days getting shorter and the weather cooling off we’re finding ourselves reaching for Red wine more and more in the evenings making more urgent the eternal quest to find and drink the best table wines in the world! This week we have a recently arrived Spanish Gem that sold out much too quickly last time we got our hands on some. Hearty Monastrell (aka Mourvedre) makes up the backbone of the 2018 Familia Pacheco Barrica and gives the wine a real sense of gravity with powerful notes of black currants and blackberries that are only mildly tempered by the addition of a kiss of creamy French oak. The 3rd generation female winemaking team at Pacheco deftly coaxes stunning minerality and firm tannins out of their family’s ancient vines while maintaining a sense of elegance and balance that cannot go unnoticed. Long-lingering flavors of baking chocolate, graphite, tar, and tobacco are irrefutable evidence of the quality of both the fruit and the vintner. And all this for ten bucks and change? Yup! That’s what it’s all about right there, folks!
Food Pairing:
Tell you what, this dark and dense Monastrell blend will be a killer wine to serve with tacos. I don’t know about you, but we’ve been crushing all sorts of different tacos lately at the house. As the weather has cooled off we’ve been reaching for a glass of wine instead of the ubiquitous hazy IPA’s that are overflowing from the fridge. I couldn’t be happier about that trend because I love the way a nice, dry, traditional table wine makes my food taste better without ever feeling heavy like beer can.

Chateau Guery L’Esprit d’Eloi Petite Verdot 2018

 If you are fed up with wimpy, wishy washy Reds that claim to be delicate in order to hide their lack of lack of structure then you are going to be all sorts of happy when you get some Petite Verdot in your glass. PV’s calling card is bold tannin and the 2018 L’Esprit d’Eloi has tannin in abundance. The wine may not be hard but it is certainly firm. As the evidence of tannin fades you’ll begin to see why we love this wine so darn much. It is imbued with the most extravagant core of dark berry fruit with sultry flavors of cassis liqueur and sun baked plums leading the charge. As it progresses onto the finish wonderfully dark flavors of crushed blackberries and blackcurrant preserves take hold. It finishes with an untamed character that is iron rich and sanguine showing remarkable evidence of terroir in spite of the intensity of fruit that it delivers. It is a fantastic choice for serving with wild game and will play very nicely with braises, roasts, and stews. This bottle is ridiculously good to drink now and it will be even better in 3 or 4 years as the tannins more fully integrate and the fruit fades a bit in order to allow the sanguine minerality to take center stage.
Food Pairing:
The last time I served a bottle of the Chateau Guery Petite Verdot I put it alongside a course of sous vide cooked lamb t-bones that I seasoned simply with salt and pepper and finished on a screaming hot grill with a kiss of one of my favorite sauces, a warm mix of half hoisin sauce and half cherry preserves. The wine stood up to those intense flavors with no trouble and left everyone at the table smiling as we polished off the first bottle and went on to a second!
