Roxy’s Pick – A Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot that Rivals the Celebrated Wines of France’s Vosne-Romanée Region

RoxypicklogoRich, round, soft, seductive, heavenly, sophisticated, elegant, beautiful, even yummy. These are just some adjectives I use to describe the 2009 Branciforte Creek Pinot Noir from Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard. A Pinot that is drinkable now, but one that I strongly recommend cellaring for the long haul, Branciforte Creek intoxicates the olfactory senses with rich and luscious aromas of rhubarb, black cherry, dark berry, and cola berry. Complex spices, minerality, and balanced acidity envelope the palate. This wine mesmerizes the senses, leaving a memorable, satisfying finish often expressed in “oohs” and “aahs.” The 2009 Branciforte Creek is an experience you’ll never forget—and one that will leave you wanting for more. In fact, I dare you not to drink the entire bottle in one night. You’ll be surprised how much this wine has to give the next day.

    Had to chuckle at your last two sentences….drinking the whole bottle and….how much it has to give the next day! A great big hangover if I attempted the former. Congrats on launching a wine blog! I think you should have called it ‘wine wench’. I’ll be following you!

    Loved your blog entry regarding lipstick. I doubt there is a person in the free world that has not found lipstick remains on a glass while eating at a restaurant. Eeeewwww!
