Forgot to take a photo of this pinot noir (I think it is the 2009) that we enjoyed on Christmas Eve in Rochester, NY, with family. The experts say it has “medium, ruby red color, with aromas of raspberry, cherry, and spice with light, tobacco notes; dry, medium-bodied, quite fruity with oak notes on the finish.”
Now, I don’t know all that, but I do know it was delicious and I’d gladly enjoy another bottle. Dad poured, Pat cheffed it all up, and the whole family traded stories and smiles while noshing down on seafood newburg, asparagus, delicious bread, olives, and some of the most perfectly cooked prime rib I’ve ever eaten. Perhaps the end of a tradition, the above, but hoping the Pelham makes it on to whatever the future holds for us all!
