Tooting Our Own Horn…

Well actually, The Los Angeles Times is doing it for us. There is an article that got forwarded to us from our distributors in The States: Infinity Imports, that discusses our 2007 Liaison Pinot Noir and names it WINE OF THE WEEK (insert excited giggle here).

You can read the full article here, but in part it states:

“what a lovely expression of Pinot Noir” and the article goes on to describe the 2007 Liaison as “elegant and smooth”.

We are rather fond of our wines, so it is always great to hear that someone else agrees!

CP Lin’s tasting notes for this wine are as follows: “Smokey preserved meat with a hint of vanilla and wood from the French oak. Slight autolysis hint in the background, aromas of bouquet garni with time in the glass. Strong fine tannins with velvet character backed up by good acidity, and under this layer there are smoky characters and sweet roasted beetroot with green gauge plum. Intense fruit concentration gives a lingering finish.”
