De Loach - Pinot Noir Marin County
This was an outstanding wine. Long finish, substantial mouth feel, like a high quality Sonoma Coast Pinot. Had with simple tortellini in broth but would pair with a lot of different dishes.
Kenneth Volk - Pinot Noir Santa Maria Cuvee
We had with shrimp/basil/tomato pasta. We should have bought more. Very full, rich mouth feel with a hint of citrus and a very long finish, slightly syrupy. The sweetness of the cherry tomatoes matched it perfectly.
Roth - Pinot Noir
Very rich mouth feel, well-balanced acidity and a long finish. We had with vegetarian pasta primavera and prosciutto/melon. Really a nice pairing. Would get more.
Martorana - Zinfandel
Black pepper on the lingering finish as well as rich plummy tannins at the front. We paired with spicy chicken tostadas with salsa. Stood up to the spice just perfectly.
Talty - Zinfandel Filice Connolly Vineyard
Very fruit forward and jammy with plum/prune dominating. We had with spicy sausage (mango/jalapeno) and pasta. Very long finish. Really stands up to spicy food.
