Day #268 of the year.

Foley Estates Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2017

I’m not saying I’m ready to get on a crowed airplane just yet, but I feel like I haven’t left the same 1000 square feet in 6 months and I’m despite for a reprieve. Today I’m using my imagination and teleporting to Foley Estates in Santa Rita Hills, California. I’m sipping on a chilled glass of the Foley Pinot Noir that’s been served with lunch after my morning walk (just 20 minutes away at Gaviota Beach). Maybe later, I’ll have a driver pick me up and head to Rodeo Drive for some shopping. Cheers everyone to Thursdays and wishful thinking.

ORIGIN

Sta. Rita Hills, California

Grapes

Tasting Notes

The plum-colored 2017 Rancho Santa Rosa Pinot Noir features earthy aromas of forest floor and notes of strawberries, pomegranate orange blossoms and cloves. The palate is firm, accented with dark plum and cranberries finishing with just a hint of hibiscus tea, rhubarb pie and sandalwood. This wine would pair well with holiday glazed ham.

Food Match

This is the perfect accompaniment for pulled pork sliders, chicken coq au vin as well as most grilled or roasted poultry and seared tuna.
