About the two Wines:
1) Ex 2017 Pinot Noir:
91 Points - Planet Grape Review
The EX 2017 Pinot Noir offers a true expression of the quality and soul of the San Saba Estate Vineyard in Monterey’s Santa Lucia Highlands. For a wine that sees minimal new oak, this Pinot Noir is incredibly rich and expansive, showing off the personality and characteristics of this special site. This wine is bright and energetic with cherry and red berry flavors that have undertones of earth and fresh minerality. Aromas of rusty cherries and sagebrush round out this smooth, silky and well balanced Pinot Noir. Enjoy!
2) Wine Spots 2018 Pinot Noir:
94 Points + Platinum Medal - Critics Challenge Wine Competition
93 Points - Wine Review Online
91 Points - Ultimate Wine Challenge
This wine offers aromas of dark cherries and flavors of red stone fruit, wrapped around a rich, voluptuous core and soft, fine tannins. The aging in French oak reveals subtle spice notes that lead into a long finish. The Wine Spots 2018 Pinot Noir comes from a selection of mature hillside vineyards in the renowned Sonoma Coast appellation, which is known for its marine influence and ideal Burgundian-style terroir.
Jessica Foster's Caramelized Almonds 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!
*The wines and artisan foods we carry in our Wine Store are in very high demand and individual wines and foods change frequently. Due to this, if a wine featured in this gift set sells out, a bottle or food item of the same quality and value will be included to complete this selection.
