A savory juicy textured herbal food pairing champ. Like cooking sous-vide with an immersion circulator, what was once a geeky oddity has found a permanent home on our table. Not a universal solution, but really the right tool for the job in certain situations. Like pan seared halibut with fennel or spring vegetable risotto.

Brett and other unmentionables. Not for me... I don't understand this styles popularity.

A little cellar time has been kind to this skin contact Pinot Gris. Everything is better knit into a cohesive whole, with apricot, black tea, citrus pith and savory herbs intertwined. Really clean winemaking here, no funk that sometimes comes along with the style. Best a touch above cellar temp, and with a little decant.

Standing up for a day was not quite long enough, but managed to get most of the gunk to settle out. Best at cellar temp, and a really lovely match with spring vegetable fettuccine. Herbs and marmalade and tea and great texture. That color tho...

This is actually 2013 Sonoma Coast Pinot noir. Heady, minerally, super-expressive.

Strawberry, cherry skin, citrus zest, fresh dough. Really broad and leesy mouthfeel and tart acidity.
