Adrian Fog Pinot Noir Mendocino County Oppenlander Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Free Shipping on 6+ bottles (exp. 11/30/08) NEW - extremely limited! PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: This deliciously opulent creation is guaranteed to impress anyone who still thinks Pinot is a �wimpy� wine. This wine is a truly rambunctuous red and 100% unfiltered 'boutique' production (less than 300 cases!). THE WINE INSIDERS "Outstanding 95" RATING: "WOW! Starting with complex, sensuous aromas of dried cherry and herbs, this remarkable wine experience launches forth with opulent bright cherry, raspberry and a hint of strawberry - rhubarb pie on the silky finish. Notes of lavender and cranberries come through a full 20 seconds after finishing this tasty creation. This is a massive wine (almost Zin-like in its intensity) now but built to last and enhance a wide range of menu items including Lamb, Salmon, and Tuna steaks. It will be an exciting 'adventure' to track it's evolution 3- 5 years! 95 points." The Wine Insiders

Adrian Fog was born from the idea that Pinot Noir should have a sense of place and that the vineyard is the birthplace of great wine. All of our vineyards are selected for their individuality. By hand selecting cool climate fruit from small vineyards, Adrian Fog is able to maintain the unique signature and personality of the vineyard. Each vineyard is selected by considering the effect of coastal fog patterns, clonel differences, age and vine orientation to the sun. Picking, fermentation and barrel ageing are done by keeping all clones and blocks separately. By this madness, we are able to learn and appreciate each wine's nuances and style intimately. Our bottlings are determined by the wine's individuality, our largest bottling is 330 cases and the smallest is 23 cases. Picking, racking, and bottling are scheduled as close to the night of the full moon as possible. We have found that she (Adrian Fog) likes and enjoys the effects of the lunar cycle. We encourage you to drink Adrian Fog on the night of a full moon to enjoy her full seductive essence. Read less

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
