WHEREAS: The Ministry of the Vinterior is now supplying per annum wine rations to the general population.
The Ministry pledges to work tirelessly on behalf of its loyal subjects, scrutinizing wine regions and vineyards the world over, selecting only those which meet the Ministry's rigorous demands for quality, value and regional authenticity. As well as, and of course, an allegiance to the Party of the Vinterior in that vintage year.
HENCEFORTH, Ministry subjects are assured of complete satisfaction with superior quality wine rations which may come from as close to home as Sonoma but as far reaching as Mendoza, Bordeaux or beyond.
This intriguing Pinot Noir opens with aromas of cherries, orange peel, violets, and fig leaf. The spicy mouth is densely layered with flavors of dried Turkish apricots and vanilla bean, and the finish lingers long with flavors of rich caramel and cloves. --Chris Nickolopoulos and Elijah Pfister, negociants.
Pinot Noir aficionados agree that the best California Pinot Noir comes from the Russian River Valley where early morning fog, warm days, an afternoon breeze from the sea and cool nights combine to make for some very happy Pinot Noir grapes. The higher alcohol content speaks to the warmer microclimate of the vineyards.
Food Pairing Notes
As one of the world’s most versatile food wines, Pinot Noir plays well with poultry, beef, fish, lamb and pork; with creamy sauces and spicy foods. It’s the only wine the populace ever needs.
