woman on wine with amy reiley
I’m one of those people who likes to drink pink once the seasons have shifted to spring. But sometimes, you still need a little something red in your life. The thought of an American Cab or a Rioja in summer makes me shudder. But a glass of Pinot seems to go down so sweetly no matter what time of year. And Pinot Noir is considered to be one of the most aphrodisiac styles of wine! Here’s a few sexy, California numbers to serve your sweetie this spring. Pinot breath encourages kisses.
2008 Pinot Noir “The Shop”
Smooth as silk with delicate notes of black cherry and currant, cinnamon, licorice and cola, the wine is easy drinking yet interesting—the sort of wine that works perfectly from aperitif all the way to dessert (with a nice halibut steak in between).
2008 Pinot Noir
Sonoma Valley, CA
Like a first date with a true gentleman, this wine treats the palate with elegance and finesse. Its floral notes on the nose and a sinful hint of truffle on the finish add just the right dose of intrigue.
2007 Pinot Noir
A smooth and easy-drinking wine, this one is a very nice buy (and a food-friendly one to boot!). It’s bright with red fruit, faint floral notes and smooth tannins.
2007 Estate Pinot Noir Cuvee Seven Twenty Eight (Fiddlestix)
Santa Rita Hills, CA
With aromas and flavors that blend sweet fruit, forest floor, caramel and spice, this is an exotic-tasting and unusual treat.
2008 Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard
Santa Maria Valley, CA
This wine truly seduces you. It starts out subtly but hits the middle of the palate with rich, dark fruits and spice which linger long, like a delicious kiss.
