Wine of the Month for July 2017 -Fiddlehead Cellars Pinot Noir 2012 Seven Twenty Eight Fiddlestix Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills
Kathy Joseph, the dynamic, owner/winemaker of Fiddlehead Cellars, lives in Davis, CA, and makes outstanding Pinot Noir from the Sta. Rita Hills appellation within Santa Barbara County. She also makes Pinot Noir from Oregon. Kathy is a hands-on person. She is meticulous about vineyard management and a perfectionist in her winemaking endeavors. Her Pinot Noir is always top notch, and her wines age beautifully. What more can we ask?
The Fiddlehead Cellars Pinot Noir 2012 is a delicious wine. The Seven Twenty Eight refers to the mile marker 7.28 on Santa Rosa Road within the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. It is dark in color and yet soft, smooth, and satisfying on the palate, with a deft touch of acidity on the finish. Definitely a very, food-friendly wine. I must confess, I am looking forward to a glass of the 2012 Pinot Noir with dinner tonight. This is Pinot Noir at its best.
For the entire month of July 2017 we are offering the Fiddlehead Cellars Pinot Noir 2012 at the reduced price of $60 per 750 ml bottle or $15 per glass. Don’t miss this opportunity to taste a world class Pinot Noir.
