2007 Argyle Pinot Noir: Silky, smooth, elegant, cherry flavor.


april 7, 2010: victoria worked a different schedule today, and since greg forgot his swimming goggles at home he decided not to go to tri-state for a swim. that meant dinner time, and we had just the pair of pork loins to make it with. victoria used this bbc recipe via http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/get_cooking/recipes/059.shtml and paired it with canned sweet peas and freshly peeled and steamed carrots. the recipe worked out well, though she didn't use the mustard it called for (and she used whole milk instead of 2 percent.)

as for the pinot, we had had this particular vintage and vineyard before. the difference was this time we paired it with pork and also greg was feeling much better than he had the two previous times we had had this wine. we both agreed it was silky, smooth and a good bottle. victoria thinks the general rule with new world pinots is that the more you spend, the better the bottle. this one was about $28 at winetree.
