The 2005 Balletto Pinot Noir was definitely the standout this week. I still have a lot to learn about wine, but I thought it paired beautifully with the simple omelets we enjoyed. This isn’t a wine that’s good just because it’s 10 years old, it’s just darn good. I’ll let the Balletto folks do the describing for me: Balletto 2005 Pinot Noir
We also opened a decent inexpensive wine out of france, which made for a nice, weeknight glass of vino. This was a D’autrefois pinot noir, which was a new one for us. I enjoyed the tart, cranberry-ish flavors and especially loved the low alcohol content at 12.5%. Bottoms up!
