more great reviews!!!

Big Thanks to Wine and Spirits Magazine!

94 Points and Best Buy - Big Table Farm Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Ex-Napans Brian Marcy and Clare Carver draw this elegant pinot noir from Johan Vineyard near McMinnville. At the outset, the wine has an appealing scent of strawberry jam, an aroma that becomes more ethereal and lifted with air. The texture is weightless, the flavors bright and limpid, with just the finest dusting of caramel oak and red cherry. A modest earth note keeps the wine grounded. For plank roasted salmon.

Do I have to move to Oregon?

Hey I had strawberry jam on my toast this morning, does that mean this is a breakfast pinot? Finally! I've been waiting soooo long for this moment. Good-bye fried eggs and Guinness, hello red wine and toast! Or maybe a mega california omelet with avocado (of course). I've got just one concern however, does it match well with Tapatio? Am I a complete philistine for saying that?

Don - this is classic and I'd say you'll have to try the Tapatio with the ca omelet and let us know... I'll have to say my breakfast drink of choice is brian's killer bloody marys...
