There's a living legend #Winemaker in #NapaValley.   Have you tasted any of his wines? If not, you should. Do whatever you can in order to taste his wines. If you are a fan of #FrenchWines you will absolutely love this wine.

I went in search of his wines in 2016 and it took a while to find them. But I found all of them in St Helena at Sunshine Foods. @sunshinefoodssthelena

8.26.2016  @BackdoorBistro in Vacaville CA, a tiny intimate restaurant that I fell in love with immediately. I was invited to lunch and had no idea what to expect.
I was intrigued with the location, the menu, and of course the wine list. My first thought....what a fabulous wine list at such a quaint little restaurant.  It was crystal clear to me that the owner must have been in the wine business or closely connected to someone in the industry. There were so many wines to select from on the list. But the one that stood out the most was the #PinotNoir by Rossi-Wallace. My lunch date wasn't into wine. So I had to contain my excitement.  She had no idea how excited I was inside about this new unknown space. I felt I shouldn't ask too many questions.  I knew without a doubt I would return to this restaurant. The label on the Pinot consumed me.  The story behind the wine was fascinating.  The wine was produced by Ric Forman, someone who I'd never heard of. I was familiar with the name Cheryl Emmolo. I'd met two of her children who are also winemakers @jennywagnerclark and @joepinot.

I paired this wine at home with a delicious steak a couple of years ago.

It fruit taste of Zinfandel.
It’s sour, fresh and bright.
It may be influenced by Sangiovese.
*
豊かな樽香。
ジンファンデルらしい果実味。
酸味もあり、瑞々しさがあって明るい印象。
サンジョベーゼの影響もあるのかもしれない。

自小在外,從新西蘭到澳洲,然後是瑞士、法國再因工出差至丹麥、德國... 究竟什麼樣的終點,才配得上這一路顛沛流離? 卻發現從未踏足北美,對美國酒陌生,10多年的大學講課亦少提及。


19世紀末,加州黃金淘盡,歐洲移民多改種葡萄,至今全美80%的葡萄都種於此。Rossi Wallace由一對夫妻在70年代創立,葡萄取自加州3個不同產區,年產量僅35木桶: 是燒過的稻草、Kirsch甜酒、酸櫻桃軟糖...

流浪的人更明白家的重要。家,是終點。一路的顛沛流離,還不是寄望日後的家多一份安穩、從容?

ちょっと前に飲んで美味しかったのと、まだセール中だったので、またロッシ・ウォレスのピノ・ノワールを購入して開けてみました😁

トマトベースのパエリアやドライトマト等、トマト系とは相性が良く、ベリーの味わいが際立ち旨いです😆😋
#ロッシウォレス #rossiwallace #rossiwallacepinot #napavalleypinotnoir #ナパワイン #カリピノ #ワインも好き

今日は鶏肉のトマトソース煮に合わせてナパのピノ・ノワールを開けてみました😁
ベリーやチェリーの味わいに酸とタンニンのバランスも良く、カリフォルニアらしいピノで旨いです😆😋

鶏肉のトマトソース煮とも良く合います😂

Weekly Winery Feature: Rossi-Wallace was started by Ric Forman and Cheryl Emmolo, a husband and wife duo who are both wine industry veterans with a rich history in Napa Valley.

The winery is named after their spirited, red-headed mothers, Annie Rossi and Roz Wallace, who are both avid gardeners. Ric and Cheryl set out to produce their favorite wine in their favorite style: a Burgundian-inspired Pinot Noir, crafted in a way that their garden-loving mothers would have wanted. Their wines are exceptional and represent a balanced, pleasurable expression of Pinot Noir that melds the best of Napa Valley and Burgundy. We love having them in the Winestyr portfolio and highly recommend trying their delicious wines. #realwine #winestyr

優勝を決めるのが難しい。。。

Feiertag schließlich, da darf man schon mal was aufmachen.

Zunächst den „Les Eminades“, einen fast schon erfrischend kühlen Franzosen, der super zum Ragú gepasst hat. Warum? Weil er bei aller Frische dennoch weich und samtig und mit durchaus Gerbstoffen daherkommt. Natürlich ist er auch, er schwefelt nach dem Öffnen förmlich, da muss man ihm etwas Zeit geben. Dann, am Abend, nach getaner Arbeit im Garten und so, der „Rossi Wallace“. Im Prinzip der Gegenentwurf: ein Pinot Noir aus dem Napa Valley. Warm, samtig, seidig, Plüsch am Gaumen, eine mundfüllende Pracht. Fast schon old school-style, weil er dazu noch viel Alkohol hat. Kein burgundisch straffer Pinot, nein, ein wärmendes Kissen an diesem stürmischen Abend. Fehlt eigentlich nur noch ein Feuerchen… #leseminades #cuvee #syrah #cinsault #grenache #lapierreplantée #lucbettoni #rossiwallace #pinotnoir #napavalley #formanvineyard #ricforman #cherylemmolo #weinhalle #rotwein #redwineday

This has got to be the most #Elegant #NapaValley #Zinfandel I have had in my life.

No really, I am NOT kidding.
When I spotted the label on the shelf @Sunshinefoodssthelena in #StHelena I screamed so loud. The store manager had no idea why I was screaming.
Finally, I was looking at a #RossiWallace bottle of wine. This #Label has been on my mind for a couple of years. The first time I saw this label was at a tiny little #Restaurant in #Vacaville #California called #BackDoorBistro.
I promised myself that if I ever came across it I would buy it because I loved the story behind the #Wine.
Because of the bottle shape, I thought it was a #PinotNoir.
Opened it last night thinking I will only have one glass.... #Impossible to-do.
It's so #Delicate #Polished #Refined #Exquisite #Classic - just so #Amazing.
2015 Rossi Wallace Zinfandel
Only 8 barrels produced
#LuckyToFindIt
Winemakers Ric Forman & Cheryl Emmolo
@rossi_wallace_pinot_noir So now I must taste your #Pinot as well.
I must taste the Forman Vineyard wines too & checkout the #winery
@emmolowines #Merlot is already a #favorite
Yes, the story definitely made me smile that's why I never forgot the label.
Blend: 75% Zinfandel, 25% Sangiovese Made by Ric Forman from Zin grown on the Nichelini Vineyard in Chiles Valley and Sangiovese from the Antinori family's Antica Vineyard on Atlas Peak, this wine is rich and dense in red fruit that's layered and ripe. Aged for a year in used Burgundy barrels, it retains juicy freshness and elegance, with subtle touches of vanilla and baking spice. The 2015 Zinfandel is actually 75% Zinfandel from Chiles Valley Nichelini Vineyard and 25% Sangiovese from Antinori's Atlas Peak estate. Bright red stone fruit notes give the wine its punch, bold personality, while the bright mountain acidity adds freshness throughout.

A great catch up dinner with a friend to celebrate her new chapter in life..

After an exhausting couple of days working and a few days of not drinking any wine it is definitely time to relax with a good red wine.

Trying this Rossi Wallace Pinot Noir. Lots of flavors of bold cherry and some cranberry with some oakiness, but not too much. #pinotnoir #napavalley #californiawine #redwine #winesofinstagram #rossiwallace #2014 #napavalleypinotnoir
