About the two Wines:
1) 93 Points - Anonio Galloni's Vinous, 92 Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: A blend of fruit from four different North Coast properties, the Donelan 2012 ‘Two Brothers’ Pinot Noir represents the Sonoma Mountain, Mendocino, Western Sonoma Coast and the Russian River Valley appellations. This wine expresses a dynamic juxtaposition of red fruits and forest fruits, alongside nutmeg and cedar. Paired with food, each of these is highlighted in its own way, and are together balanced with baking spice, fine tannin, and freshness.
2) 94 Points - Anonio Galloni's Vinous, 94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck, 93 Points - Wine Enthusiast magazine, 91+ Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: Crafted from the esteemed Solomon Hills vineyard, the western-most site in the Santa Maria Valley, this 2014 Pinot Noir packs great energy and tremendous depth of flavors. On the nose, vibrant aromatics of fennel, cinnamon and blue fruits dominate, while hints of toasted oak, rhubarb, cranberry and roasted plum come through as the wine opens up. These notes carry though on the palate, with the addition of spicy fruit flavors and nuances of bay leaf, dried sage and roasted meat. Well-integrated acidity balances out these masculine flavors that linger on the long finish.
Jessica Foster's Chocolate Truffles pair perfectly with both of these highly-rated, award-winning wines featured in our Pinot Noir Wine of the Month Club.
This is a perfect gift for the Pinot Lover who loves chocolate too!
