Opened a bottle of 2011 LWC (Loring Wine Company) Santa Rita Hills
Pinot Noir with leftover ribs and "calico" beans ( a mild form of
ranch/or baked beans) and some fresh sauteed morels. The wine is
bright, clear and medium purple in the glass. Sourced from a number
of sites it has the hallmarks of a blended wine. It's soft and
approachable with just enough stuffing to keep it interesting.
Typical pinot fruit a bit of black and red fruits with a touch of
asian spice. A bit more acid would make it a tad more my style but it
was a good QPR at $25. I've had some of LWC's single vineyard
bottlings which I prefer but at this was servicable and enjoyable. "B"
