Happy Wine Wednesday! Since I’ve been featuring California Central Coast wines, I figured I would do one more before moving on to other regions.
2017 “She’s Crafty”
Pinot Noir Rose
Quinta Del Mar Vineyard
Sta. Rita Hills AVA
Central Coast, California
This wine is a gorgeous rose gold color, with delightful floral aromas, including jasmine and roses. It has a soft, supple mouth feel and good acid. Flavors of tart plum, kiwi, strawberries and blood orange round out this fun and delicious wine. Pair with some salty meats and cheeses – an aged gouda or machego and prosciutto or coppa.
You may recognize the title of this wine. It’s named after the Beastie Boys song, “She’s Crafty.” The art on the label also reflects this playful wine’s namesake. La Voix translates to The Voice, and all of their wines are named after songs. This is Steve Clifton’s (Brewer-Clifton and Palmina) first venture into using classic French varietals exclusively.
