$16.99 Montes Limited Edition Pinot Noir
Chile’s Aconcagua Valley on the coast is ideal to grow Pinot.
At first sniff, I went and added more lemon juice to the Tzatziki.
At first sample, more cumin and a touch of tarragon went into the kefta mix.
This has been the toughest to evaluate. It has left me confused – [hold thy tongue!]
It’s not Aussie Style Pinot and definitely not BC Style. Just Different.
On its own, I can’t recommend it for just sipping. It was light and enjoyable but doesn’t make it into the outstanding bracket.
By the time it got to be with food, it seemed to wake up and went quite well with dinner, and I did snitch a little extra.
The Tree House pairing tonight was Middle East Street Market style food. Build your own. Lamb kebabs (baked), thin pita, with tzatziki and veggies and tabouli made with fresh local ingredients.
