2012 Bridlewood Estate Monterey County Pinot Noir

bridlewood-estate-winery-monterey-county-pinot-noirAt Bridlewood, we like to take our time. We hand select our grapes from California’s vast Central Coast AVA, and we pour our passion into winemaking. Our picturesque 105-acre estate rests on a high bench of ancient seabed, facing the Pacific breezes that meander through the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south and the Purisima Hills and San Raphael Mountains to the north. Days are warm, nights are cool and the abundant sunshine is tempered by wind and fog. This is Central Coast Wine Country at its best. The grapes for this wine were harvested early in the morning, keeping them as cool as possible. This helped the grapes retain their natural acidity and expressive fruit flavors while allowing for better control of the fermentation temperature.

From the winemaker – “Our Bridlewood Monterey County Pinot Noir has layers of cherry, raspberry and plum flavors that are nicely complemented by hints of caramel, vanilla and toffee. The soft, silky mouthfeel of this Pinot Noir goes a long way.”

This wine is best served with Veal chops, veal Marsala, Piccata, Osso bucco.  Veal with light herb, vegetable, cheese, cream, mushroom or wine sauces. Mild, firm cheeses like Swiss or Gouda.  Hard cheeses like Parmigiano or Romano and savory cheese like Cheddar.

Heidsieck & Co Monopole Brut Champagne

The Heidsieck & Co. has a lovely nose of lemon curd, a little candied ginger and a subtle hint of root vegetables in there. The mouth has clean citrus flavors and a very clean, crisp finish.

From the winemaker – “On the 2007 Wine Spectator Top 100 list! This Non-Vintage is one of Champagne’s best kept secrets. Elegant and expressive, this delivers floral, pear and toffee flavors matched to a creamy texture. Beautifully integrated and lingers nicely on the mineral finish.”

This wine is perfect with shellfish like lobster or scallops with rich or hearty sauces, shrimp cocktail or Caviar. Cheeses like brie or other semi-soft cheeses, Swiss, Gouda and other mild, firm cheeses.
