Von Holt RRV Pinot in Twin Falls!
Von Holt Wines was in a Wine Trials tasting up in Twin Falls Idaho last week! Our 2009 Russian River Pinot Noir was matched with exquisite main dishes prepared by a wonderful caterer from Oregon. Imagine cinnamon braised short ribs with romesco; roasted heirloom potatoes with a charred scallion oil; summer herb slow roasted salmon; corn and heirloom tomato salad with a basil vinaigrette and, finally, a chilled shrimp salad with green beans and melon, shaved radishes with an Asian dressing. The delicate RRV Pinot showed everyone attending that a California Pinot can have powerful fruit without sacrificing complexity and lower alcohol levels. It matched perfectly with the menu and really delivered as a food friendly wine! The Pinot was well-received by all with many compliments. Chris and I could not be more pleased.
