Review: La Petite Perrier 2013 Pinot Noir - Saget La Perriere, France

Attack the heat of summer with this playful red wine. 

This year I've enjoyed several wines by Saget la Perriere; in particular the "Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre" and "La Petite Perriere Sauvignon Blanc", both lovely white wines. Now I've had the opportunity to appreciate their La Petite Perriere Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is typically a light bodied variety and this Loire Valley Pinot Noir is certainly well suited for this hot summer. Don't neglect to also serve red wine for family and friends this season. I hope these tasting notes help you in selecting a wine for your indoor and outdoor events.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Pale ruby.
Nose: Light, delicate strawberry, glimmer of light off an earthy core, whispers of petrol.
Palate: Pretty, light with good medium weight, just bright with fresh cherry, almost creamy, delightful on the palate. Playful wine. Light finish with dash of spice. Pretty, delicate, feminine wine. Like.
After 20 minutes: Fresh, light, fun, creamy red fruit, almost ripe raspberry into the finish. Dry, playful on the tongue. Quite pleased with this wine.
5 hours: Young and fresh, dry raspberry, perfect for summer enjoyment. Serve chilled.

Day two: Tart, raspberry, cherry. Pair with heavy foods, sausage, Kielbasa, salami, shaved ham and hard cheeses.

Thoughts: Lower alcohol, delicate palate, this wine drank young and fresh. Serve chilled and enjoy the La Petite Perrier Pinot Noir this summer. Recommended.

ABV: 12.5%
Closure: Screw cap
SRP: $13.99

8th generation Family owned and managed Loire Valley winery.

In 1790, the Saget family embarked upon a long history dedicated to vines and wine, firmly placing Saget among just a handful of estates that can enjoy their third successive century of business. Saget La Perrière, a Loire Valley winery, is 9th Generation Family owned and managed. Brought up in the vineyards, the Saget brothers; Jean-Louis and Christian, learned from a very young age to love and respect the soil. Saget La Perrière sources two-thirds of the production in the Loire Valley from their estates with the remainder from long-term relationships with families of vine growers.

Cheers!

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram. If you ask, I usually do. After success and failures, I've learned that this dessert does not always deliver desired results. With some effort, I've figured out why, and the remedy. Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed results. Confiding with my wife, she gave me a tip that finally nailed this recipe down. I'm happy to share this recipe with modifications. It's truly a lovely dessert. My favorite. Enjoy responsibly. Just out of the oven flourless chocolate torte. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Torte An easy recipe to follow. You will need an oven, mixer, spring form pan and a double boiler. While you can eat this torte warm, I prefer to let it cool down and refrigerate it

Chateau St. Michelle, Indian Wells, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Good Wine, Happy Camper Fall is settling on us quite rapidly. Today, our sunny afternoon was framed by ominous dark clouds lurking on the horizon north of us. It‘s unsettling how quickly the cool weather descends on SE Washington. That touch of autumn sunshine put me in the mood for grilling steaks tonight. I‘ll embrace the sun when I can. But, what good is steak without wine? On my way home, I grabbed a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. On a whim, I bought a wine I would not usually purchase; it was priced on sale for less that $15. My expectations were not high for the wine, I was just hoping for something palatable. Chateau St. Michelle Chateau St. Michelle, is a Washington winery - an Eastern and Western Washington winery. The St. Michelle winery and tasting room is located in Woodinville, Washington, just across lake Washington from Seattle. However, this wine is made in Patterson, Washington, from Columbia Valley grapes (Indian Wells series) at their attractive Columbia Crest

The Ministry of Time/El Ministerio Del Tiempo History is under threat. Someone is attempting to alter the past. In response, a secret government organization is working to protect the sanctity of time. This group is the Ministry of Time. Agents of the ministry, are able to travel to different times and places via a deep well of stairs located in Madrid, Spain. From these stairs, innumerable doorways branch off to different periods of the past. Agents are recruited from other time periods, they work diligently to protect the history of Spain. And we get to go along for the thrilling ride. I’m changing up things today by recommending my favorite Spanish TV series. I found it accidentally, now I'm hooked.
