Roshambo Pinot Noir Dry Creek Valley Frank Frank Johnson Vineyard 2006

Member Review by drdebs:

Aromatic with high-toned cherry flavors. Rich finish and nice aromatics, but slightly hollow on the midpalate.

Roshambo Winery:
Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson.

Roshambo Winery was born of the simple idea that serious wines became, well, a little too serious. It's the brainchild of maverick Wine Hero Naomi Brilliant, granddaughter of the late and great Sonoma County grape grower, Frank Johnson. Our small, independent winery was named after the West Coast slang for the ancient children's game, "Rock, Paper, Scissors," and with our annual RPS Tournaments, Pirate Proms and Roshambustops, we like to think we are fighting for fun in a winey world. Buut... it's important to note that while we take pride in our storied history of creative branding, we know that it's what's inside the bottle that really counts. We have to appeal to your palates and senses as much as your spirit. Because no matter how slickly we package the stuff, we know we can't pull the wool over the oenophile's eyes... nor can we lure the beer and booze set to the Other Side of the Vine with a bogey in the bottle. The whole point of this adventure was to welcome a new crowd of people to the party - Gen-Xers , Boomers, Millenials and Unidentifiables alike - by providing a disarmingly fun context in which to encounter serious wine. Our offerings have been fortunate enough to catch critical praise - most recently, in Wine Enthusiast's March '08 Buying Guide (FJV Syrah: 93 Points, Reverend Zinfandel: 92 Points, "Rock" Rhone Blend: 90 Points). Though... we don't think you should buy a wine just because so and so says so. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
