Wine Discovery - West Coast Pinot Noir
Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EST)
For vintners, the varietals they produce are largely dictated by their latitude and longitude, and this is especially true in California's wine country. Pinot Noir grows along the coast due to its love for fog-draped nights and brisk sea breeze.
We are tasting three promising Pinots that are sure to stop you in your tracks.
Fess Parker's 2009 take on this varietal is velvety in texture, with flavors of black fruit, nutmeg, mocha, vanilla and forest floor.
Gundlach Bundschu's 2009 Pinot has juicy flavors of black plum and Bing cherries laced with dried rose petal, cardamom and ceylon tea.
The 2010 Hahn blend has bright red berry fruit on the nose and palate, a superlative example of a Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir.
We'll share some tasty morsels as we taste these wines and discuss what drives Pinot lovers and producers to obsession with this mysterious grape. We'll discuss the history of each vineyard, and give an introduction to each of their winemakers and their individual philosophies.
You'll have an opportunity to explore these wines in a new way, as you expand your palate, by smelling separate components such as cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom so that you are better able to identify these aromas in each wine.
We will also talk about some perfect pairing partners for Pinot.
This class will be held in the Private Dining Room at the beautiful Pelagia Trattoria located at International Mall inside the Renaissance Hotel.
