Santa Rita Hills
This is a very good example of Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir. It is fruit forward, intensely aromatic and super smooth on the palate. Gogi is the passion project of actor-turned-winemaker, Kurt Russell. This is not his first foray into wine making nor his first time working with Pinot Noir. He has several vintages under his belt with the assistance of fellow Santa Rita Hills winemaker, Peter Work, of Ampelos. Each and every year his Pinot Noir and Chardonnay show more sophistication. This comes from both the age of the vines and his growth as a winemaker, carefully crafting raw material into a finely honed blend of his cuvée.
Enjoy it with Korean BBQ, seared duck breast or a little cheese…
Le Demon du Midi
$25 ea / approx 8oz
Le Demon du Midi is not the stinkiest cheese in the store, but not for an amateur either. The devilish cheese from the Franche-Comté is the perfect cheese to enjoy a glass of red wine with as the weather cools and we start to reach for slightly richer wines. Made of pasteurized cows milk, this washed rind cheese will become creamy and gooey at room temperature. We suggest leaving it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving. Feel free to pop a bottle of Gogi at this same time and let it breathe a little, as well.
