Amber Falls Cajunfest

This is a fun Tennessee wine to drink with hamburger or Pizza and other spicy foods.  This is not a wine you will drink every day but once in a while it’s fun. 

Per Amber Falls website:

This fun wine, a sweet red blend of Concord, Chambourcin and Chancellor grapes, is infused with Cajun spices. Sweet on the front palate, it has a warm and delicious lingering finish. This singular wine is truly one of a kind and unforgettable. Without a doubt, it brings out the festival in any occasion!

Truchard Vineyards 2009 Carneros Pinot Noir Reviewed

Truchard Pinot Noir

I have yet to find a wine from Truchard Vineyards that I did not love. This small Napa Valley winery makes consistently great wines.  Tony Truchard started his vineyard in 1974 selling grapes to many of Napa Valley’s top wineries. They still continue to sell to about 20 wineries. In 1989 they started producing their own wine.  Today they produce 16,000 cases with 11 different wines.
A recent stop to my local wine shop had a bottle of the 2009 Truchard Pinot Noir Carneros. This wine is aging perfectly This full body wine, is extremely smooth with hints of black cherry, cranberry and touches of tea.  With just a touch of tannin’s   The Truchard 2009 Pinot Noir Carneros is the perfect example of Napa Valley Pinot Noir.
