We purchased the Pinot Noir back in June during our trip to Wente, http://mferraro73.tumblr.com/post/88717310148/trip-to-livermore-part-one-its-been-over-a. And who could pass up a cheese with a lighthouse display at TJ’s! Let WineAndCheeseFriday begin…
While we were in France, we figured we should try some of the famous French Wine And Cheeses. Here’s what we got a hold of while we were there.
In order to bring 2013 to a close, I decided to create a “Most Memorable Wines of 2013” list. These wines are all wines that made such an impact on me that I continued to talk about them after finishing the bottle. Overall, I really liked them but one that made the list, turned my stomach.
These are not listed in any particular order
During our last WineAndCheese we determined the order of best wine and cheese pairings for PinotVember. Surprisingly we had the same results, top pairing was the Willowbrook Pinot and Camembert and then:
We found our final Pinot Noir for Pinot-Vember during our recent trip to Sonoma, http://mferraro73.tumblr.com/post/68438913683/sonoma-trip-with-geoff-and-sabrina-11-24-over, at Alexander Valley Vineyards. (http://www.avvwine.com/) Although we did research the cheeses that would pair well with this type of wine, we still couldn’t find them at the grocery store. We decided to try out a Mozzerella cheese since we haven’t used this cheese during Wine And Cheese Friday.
Pinot-Vember continues this week with a wine we purchased on our trip to Kenwood, CA. (http://mferraro73.tumblr.com/post/61985730370/trip-to-kenwood-9-15-we-continued-on-our-search)
Neil was doing his programming thing this weekend so we decided to do wine and cheese a little different. Usually we taste the wine and cheese side by side and compare notes. This time we tasted separately, lets see if it changes anything…
Join us in celebrating Pinot-Vember this month! We’ve decided to feature all Pinot Noir wine pairings as a fun theme for the blog.
It’s your lucky day, a bonus post from Maria & Neil.
Friday night at The Bluxome Street Winery, Saturday at “Uncorked”, and Sunday night at The Pour House.
