This week’s WOW, the Lafage Bastide Miraflors sold out fast so we’re offering a highly rated, delicious alternative to Pinot Noir to take its place.
2013 Saint Gregory Pinot Meunier
Mendocino County, California
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast: “Made from a traditional Champagne grape variety, with 12% of the South African Pinotage variety blended in. Aromas like dried herbs and cedar, intriguing flavors like black tea and pomegranate juice and a beautiful balance between acidity, ripeness and a lightly tannic texture make a compelling combination.”
Loaded with aromas and flavors of cherry, raspberry and a hint of toasty vanilla. This wine is well-balanced with fresh acidity and finishes long, smooth and fruity. Excellent on its own or with soft cheeses, baby back ribs and even pizza.
