Hi Guys... I went to the Whole Foods food blogger event at SXSW (Austin) and they had this great wine tasting event. Basically, they took texas wine and compared it to wines from all over the world - to show how they stacked up in a blind taste test. The TX wine held up which was a surprise. Watch out California. Anyhow, I don't have the name of the wine in front of me, but it was an orange flavored dessert wine.. it was awesome! Although it wasn't the TX one. I literally went back for more. I will post name later. You have to try it!

Probably an Orange Muscat... Essensia makes one in CA... I was first exposed to it when I moved here (CA) it is illegal in Oregon because of the High alcohol content... It's too High to be 'wine' and too low to be a 'liqueuer' so the OLCC wont let it in the state... Sad Which is a total bummer.... Glad I am in CA!!! cause it's GREAT for poaching Pears....

I think you're right.. it was so awesome that I literally had to go back and ask for two more glasses (keep in mind it was part of a wine tasting so we weren't supposed to drink). AHAHHH

We have to sample this one day! I need to get my wine tasting on for this month..

Happy Monday... ok I know Monday's suck!

So this weekend was grilling weekend for thecookinghusband. I grilled quail with a pepper glaze and matched it up with Mirassou Pinot Noir. The reason I matched this wine (2007 bottle) was due to the berry flavor and I felt it would chill some of the heat from the glaze. I also had the Pinot chilled which was very nice. My bottle of Mirassou was $11 and some change but I will tell you I am picking up a couple of bottles to have around the kitchen for when I am cooking and don't feel like beer.

HA! I think the Mirrasou Pinot Noir is the other bottle I had picked up that I haven't tasted yet. I was so impressed with their Reisling, thought I'd give the Pinot a shot. Good to hear someone else has had it and liked it. Smile

OK - so I purchased my bottle of Pinot Noir for the wine club and brought it to a party last week so I would have a bunch of people try it out.....

Needless to say, we are all forgetful drunks and I can't even remember if any of us HAD the pinot noir.......

I am such a bad member! Wink

I kleep forgetting to post my review... I still have one more bottle, but I don;t think I am going to make it before the end of the month....

Name: Carmel road
Price: $21.99
Year: 2007

Short intro from the wine maker about the wine:
No Intro, but it comes from Monterey, CA.

Review:
Nose: Inspired--- Blackberry and Big cherry laced Mushrooms with Tobacco and Violets

Palate: Black currents, Black Cap Raspberries all on top of a tobacco’ed mushrooms with hit’s of wild violets

Mouth-feel: If it was possible to drink silk, this would be it.

Would you buy again?: Heck yeah!! I just wish it was a little less expensive ‘cause it’s REALLY good.

Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes:White Truffle Buttered Risotto; Panko/Parmegiano-Reggiano Crusted Lamb; Black Truffled Duck (both my truffle suggestions are the Italian truffles, not the French ones)
