So the Pellegrini Tasting at The Austin Wine Merchant was so fun! Thanks to everyone for coming out to taste the wonderful wines of Pellegrini Family Vineyards. I tasted the new 2006 Olivet Lane Pinot Noir for the first time - WOW! Love it. Certainly in it's baby-stages since the winery just released, but what a FABULOUS Pinot Noir!
"One of Pelligrini's labels, the Olivet Lane estate is situated on 65-acres of sloping benchland in the Russian River Valley. Most famous for the role it's played in Williams-Selyem's vineyard designated pinot noirs, the Olivet lane Estate Pinot Noir exhibits those same unmistakable characteristics: vibrant color, silky texture, elegant mouthfeel and upfront flavors of raspberry, red cherry and spice. Enjoyable now, this wine will continue to reward with age." $35.99
Pick up a case while you can folks, like past vintages, I'm certain that this beauty will sell-out quickly! Cheers - ALI
