The 2009 Sonoma Coast displays a perfumed delicacy that is immediately appealing, yet belies an underlying richness. Blueberries, fraise du bois and blue violets all effuse from the wine in an ethereal manner. Accents of milk chocolate and creamy wood spices add depth. Disarmingly supple, rich and full with a silky, graceful balance,
this Pinot Noir has a sophisticated core of fine-grained tannin and fresh acidity. It will surprise you with its age-worthiness.
A delightful recipe for Grilled Scottish Salmon was submitted by our customer Josh Belenchia. Salmon is placed on a colorful bed of basil pesto orzo, surrounded by fried eggplant topped with tomato vinaigrette. For this delicious pairing, Josh will receive a signed magnum of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.
