Food Pairings for Rex Goliath Pinot Noir Central Coast
How do you capture in words the wonderful sensation of drinking a fine Pinot Noir? Lush and velvety. Immensely pleasurable. This typifies a fine Pinot Noir and is what I try to achieve when I have the pleasure of making them. I feel that our HRM Rex-Goliath Pinot Noir is all that and a bit more. The aromas are characteristic of the cool Central coast vineyards that yielded the majority of the grapes for this wine. Red berry perfume with a touch of cinnamon spice, wrapped in a blanket of subtle French oak. Breathe it in. This is one of Pinot Noir's great pleasures. The taste is pure Pinot, too. Mouth-filling overripe raspberry and cherry flavors. Soft and supple are a few of the descriptors I would use. The wine exhibits a velvet finish due to the soft tannins and understated acidity. I'm told that it is quite difficult to find a nice Pinot Noir for under ten dollars. That's why we're particularly proud of this wine. It means that you can either bring home a second bottle for about what you'd pay for one bottle of many other Pinot Noirs, or put the extra savings into a nice dinner of salmon steaks with garlic mashed potatoes (one of my favorite Pinot foods), or try duck confit on a bed of roasted garlic and steamed spinach greens. - Winemaker Michael Kafka HRM Rex Goliath Pinot Noir receives Gold Medal at 2006 San Francisco International Wine Competition!
