Lots of good things happening in #windsorcalifornia these days. Had a fine #winetasting at @grandcrucrush  two weeks ago. Hospitality director Nicole Yasinac poured us the Vintners’ Selection from seven small producers (more in another post), and we chatted with GM Robert Morris, who said the building’s design is based on a 1930s garage in Cayucos (Central Coast). Nice clean lines. Things are probably a little busier now at #grandcrucustomcrush, I’d guess, what with all that #pinotnoir coming in. (Clients here include #blackkitecellars #muellerwinery #sangiacomowines #smithstorywines + many more.) •

•  Nearby, workers were rushing to complete the new #rrbcwindsor facility, where @russianriverbrewingofficial folks are already producing beer and soon will be serving it at a 180-seat brewpub. I’m checking Grand Cru and (later) the new RRBC for @fodorstravel Napa/Sonoma guide. Go, #windsorca! #winedestinations #beerdestinations #fodorstravel #fodorsonthego #visitsonomacounty #sonomacounty #visitcalifornia #dannymangin

Making this a Wonder Woman Wednesday with this 2011 @blackkitecellars pinot noir from the Soberanes Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. This family owned and operated producer is led by winemaker Jeff Gaffner and tastings are by appointment in Windsor. This one has aromas of cinnamon, cherry blossom and ripe strawberry with a palette filled with thyme, pomegranate and cherry cola. Get ready for our #PinkSociety wine chat tomorrow over on @twitter as we host @cnagywines.

2012 Black Kite Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard.  Still scorching this weekend down in the OC so popping a good one from @blackkitecellars.  Lovely wine with raspberries, red cherries and wild berries up front on the fruit profile with a nice structure to it.  Has some notes of cedar, smoke, rose petals, and spice on the mid-palate.  Still has some firm acidity to it with a long finish that has an ever so subtle effervescence to it at the end.  Nicely done!  93 points on the BOTV scale.

In honor of #tastingroomtuesday, throwing it back to my Sunday funday at @grandcrucrush. I did the one hour Vintner’s select tasting which featured 7 wines (reds coming in a post soon 😋) from seven of the area’s best small producers. .
.
This tasting featured @muellerwine “first blush” rosé of Russian River Pinot, @magnoliablossomwines Russian River chardonnay and @blackkitecellars Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay.  What’s cool is Grand Cru rotates the lineup of this tasting every 4-6 weeks, so I obviously have to go back and see what other tricks these wineries have up their sleeves 😉

A treat at last month’s @avwinegrowers Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival was the 2012-2014 vertical of @blackkitecellars Angel Hawk Pinot Noir, for which winemaker #jeffgaffner selects the best lots from three sections of Black Kite’s estate Kite’s Rest Vineyard. Shown here is Redwoods’ Edge, the highest hillside block. The wines certainly had long finishes (especially the 2012)—they still linger in memory two weeks later. It was a pleasure meeting Rebecca, Tom, Wendi, and Michael at various #AVPNF events. Also visiting Kite's Rest on open-house day. Looking forward to checking in with Tom and Michael for @fodorstravel later this summer at Black Kite’s co-op tasting room in Windsor, but you're welcome to beat me to it (link in Black Kite's bio to website).

今日はワインのポストです🍷

お昼に、少し遠くのワイン専門店まで足をのばしてきました。夫の誕生日用に、シャルドネとピノ・ノワールを準備しまーす。

カリフォルニア・ワインはどこでも販売されているんだけど、同じ銘柄でも格上のヴィンヤードのものは、店舗へのアロケーションが限られていて、専門店にまで行かなければ手に入りません。で、店舗によってセレクションもかなり違ってきます。

ちなみに、普段はコストコで安いのを大量買い😎

今日はカリフォルニア・ピノ・ノワールの代表格でもあるピゾーニのワインを入手したかったんですが、残念ながら在庫切れでした。
そこで、同じピゾーニ・ファミリーのルシアを購入。ソベラネス・ヴィンヤードはラターシュ・クローンのブドウから作られ、ピゾーニに引けを取らない高評価です。(そしてお手頃価格です。)これは以前飲んだ事がありますが、なかなか美味しかったです。若いビンテージは少し熟成させた方が良し。

2本目、ブラックカイトのピノ・ノワールは飲んだ事がないですが、最良だと言われるヴィンヤードのものをセレクトしてみました。ソノマのワインなので、もし良さそうであればワイナリーにも行ってみたいです。

3本目は、ピノ・ノワールで名高いオンルートの中から、あえてシャルドネをセレクト。
オンルートのピノ・ノワールは、ロマネ・コンティに感銘を受けたと言われる創設者が試行錯誤を重ねソノマの自社畑で栽培したブドウで徐々に名を知られるようになりました。

あえてシャルドネを買った理由は、シャルドネで有名なファーニエンテのオーナーが始めたワイナリーなので、シャルドネもきっと美味しいに違いないと思っただけ😳あとここのピノもいつも飲んでいるので、ちょっと違うものを試してみたくて。

どれも同じ位の価格帯だったと思います。安すぎず、高すぎず、まぁまぁお手頃なものです。

帰宅して、夫に知られないうちにワインセラーに入れようと思ったら、棚がいっぱいじゃないですかー😕
入らないから棚の下に隠しました。誕生日まで見つかりませんよーに。

2009 Black Kite Pinot Noir Redwoods’ Edge.  Such an elegant wine right now with this one from @blackkitecellars.  Wonderful up front fruit of red cherry, raspberry, and wild berry.  What follows on the mid-palate is a solid core of cinnamon spice, vanilla, and some earthy notes.  Medium bodied and acidity at this point but the finish is nice and long.  Drinking very well right now!  93 points on the BOTV scale.

Last had this same bottle and vintage from @blackkitecellars back on New Year's Eve  in 2011. Would not have thought that it was built for extended aging but it would be hard to tell otherwise at this point, it's held up quite nicely thus far!

We had a great evening at Whispering Vine last night. Next time you’re in Reno, check out their selection of California & International wines - one of the best we’ve seen!  Thanks for having us @whisperingvine!

I have to admit that I wasn't in love with this wine from the get go. . . (thought it was a mega fruit bomb) 
However, after waiting patiently for an hour or two, the savoriness and earthiness came alive and the wine shined.

I tasted to the bottom of Primitivo and eager to go to the higher level of Black Kite 2013 Pino Noir Sonoma Coast. I'm a lot happier with a glass of this Pino than when I performed my duty as a person who found and bought the Primitivo, for sure. I may try more Primitivo later not to judge with only one example, though. #sonomawine #pinonoir #blackkite #blackkitecellars #riedelglass #riedelwineglass #sonomacoastwine #sonomapinonoir #ソノマワイン #ソノマピノノワール #ピノノワール #ブラックカイト #ブラックカイトセラーズ #リーデルワイングラス
