No Ohio? First time I ever saw us cut out. Is it because everyone hates us for dominating the news cycle this election season??

It has nothing to do with the election, we all just hate Ohio period.

I'd love to hear some tasting notes/reviews of this s my wife is a Pinot lover and the price point is really good. Don't usually find many good to great Pinots at this price...

So if we're going to compare budget to budget, any thoughts vs. The Other Guys Pennywise 2009 PN that a certain mag and SH rated 90 best buy?
I'd like to think this is significantly better.

References the 2008:


This is the handy work of Grapewagon Corporation aka Hess, James MacPhail but we are not supposed say that Sequana is his label, this entry level Pinot Noir offering up a good amount of black raspberry and cherry berry fruit very appealing bouquet with some pretty floral notes. A nice meaty almost new leather quality to the palate with a good amount of black spices and light smoky character to the finish, a nice amount of Pinot Noir character to the finish. Finish 35+ Very Good +

I haven't had the Pennywise, but I can say that this is solid juice for the price. I find that many Pinots in this price range are hard to swallow, but this is actually quite tasty. A nice everyday Pinot for $12.50 a bottle.

This is sufficiently intriguing that I'd take two bottles if somebody wants to split. But I'm not supposed to be buying wine. But it does sound interesting.

I recall the swami having a little edge-a smoky/graphite note. This has a more pure fruit- no graphite. But decent acidity and well-balanced.

I was wondering this myself for Louisiana, which is usually on the list, and found this information:

"Wineries must have a direct shipping permit in order to ship to consumers in Louisiana. The annual fee is $150 and direct shippers are required to pay sales and excise taxes and file monthly reports. However, beginning January 1, 2012 Louisiana will transition to quarterly reporting periods."

I'm guessing that was the issue here for Louisiana.

Ohio's says:

"Direct shipping to Ohio consumers is permitted for licensed wineries that produce less than 250,000 gallons per year. The Direct Shipper must make a “bona fide” effort to ensure that the customer is over 21 years old."

I wonder if this winery is simply too prolific.

No Virginia shipping. That's a bummer. I'm out of Pinot.

I found my tasting notes, over two nights of tasting:

Nose of dark fruit, candied bing cherry, earth, nice floral components.

On the palate the fruit is very tasty, not an old world pinot for sure, but not an over the top fruit bomb either. Lots of dark cherry, forest floor, bit of mushroom typically associated with Sonoma Coast fruit, nice acidity, and a nice spicy finish. The finish was medium plus, and there were nice layers to the wine which is something I really look for in a quality Pinot.

IMHO this is a wine if you paid $30 for at the store or winery you would not be disappointed. For $13 a bottle, if you like Pinot, this is a no brainer.

Couldn't pass up on a good sub $15 PN. Will this ship in time to let it rest a month before late December?

I like to talk about wine, but I'd rather drink it.

C'mon now, how about an 'obvious' consideration: How does this pinot pair with the Beehive cheese (and other foods--please be specific...recipes?!?) I'm looking at a multiple purchase (=shipping savings); thanks!

Not sure about the Beehive (I didn't get to try any!!), but this Pinot would be great with roast pork or grilled salmon... Even a roasted chicken. Or by itself...!

Neil, do you have an accompanying fav roast pork/chix/grilled salmon recipe that you're willing to share?!?

I've been really digging the salmon on a cedar plank OR salmon cut into small pieces and wrapped with veggies in cedar paper. The cedar paper deals are really cool from a presentation standpoint- (you lay the salmon peice alongside some carrots and green onions and then wrap them and tie them with the green onion stem)- I found the recipie online by googling it (after finding the cedar paper in a forgotten gift basket my wife had gotten me last year).

Pork- I like to pan sear a tenderloin and then oven roast it with aromatic herbs- rosemary etc. if you serve it with an orange marmalade sauce, that might be a problem for the Pinot, but So Be It....!

I'm really into your suggestions...& it's the first I've heard of cedar papers--I'll check it out. Have you ever tried coating the salmon in mayo and laying on bacon strips before baking...it locks in the moisture and adds that salty bacon flavor (you know the one)...! Of course, there's always homemade lax...as only Scandinavians truly know.

Regarding the pork: EXACTLY!...sear to lock in the juices...& a reduction makes a great gravy, too! Thanks!

And everyone else, please chime in!

Bacon is never wrong; and if it is... well, I don't want to be right...
