wine list wednesday

sean minor's 2009 pinot noir is simply tops. i recently discovered it, quite by accident and now ive brought it to every party, house warming and event ive attended in the recent past. 

i always find myself drawn to wines from the Carneros region of napa valley and this wine is no exception.  

its smooth and elegant and so drinkable - it has a whole mouth feel and a velvety finish, just a hit of dryness and ripe berry fruits all perfectly punctuated by the spiciness of black pepper - but what is remarkable it the restraint this wine shows-

none of these flavors hit you over the head and each mouthful is a further discovery - at around 17$ a bottle i highly recommend discovering this wine for yourself.
