2006 La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir: Very good with this meal.




oct. 5, 2009: we had this californian with homemade harissa and seasoned chicken skewers via http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/herb-marinated-chicken-skewers-with-harissa and some homemade hummus via http://mideastfood.about.com/od/appetizerssnacks/r/hummusbitahini.htm. the meal was delicious. the wine started out as acidic, but it mellowed out as it started to aerate. greg said this wine hasn't changed since we had it last (see a posting from june 7, 2009): this 2006 vintage is smooth, hardly acidic, the nose is slightly cherry and he can smell the tannins. greg said this pinot went very well with the meal and that neither modified the other. victoria said this wine becomes slightly more acidic the farther it gets from the meal. this was 13.9 percent alcohol. $20.69 at big red liquors (with 10 percent case discount).
