We took a trip up to Santa Ynez Valley for Thanksgiving weekend and stopped by the Alma Rosa Tasting Room on Santa Rosa Road. It is beautiful, a fantastic place to stop for a picnic. Alma Rosa Winery is the source of our chosen wine for "What to drink on Monday night"(WTDOMN). The 2006 Alma Rosa Pinot Gris: Lovely floral nose, crisp acidity, an eclectic mix of ruby red grapefruit, meyer lemon, with a touch of pear on the finish, and a nice well rounded mouth feel. All of this for $16. A wonderful food wine. We recommend pairing with Thai food & enjoy something besides turkey for dinner tonight.
side note: the bottle & label are lovely, great packaging: A thoughtful holiday gift.
