Spring is a time of rebirth and a time to remember the past. These Daffodils grew at my Grandparents house in Ravenna, Nebraska. My Mom, from Olympia Washington, dug some up and gave them to us when we lived in San Jose, California…and now they are flourishing here in Sebastopol, California!
Yes…we have survived the rains. You will see more details in a later post, but it appears 2017 will set the record for most rainfall in the last 100 years.
Pinot Noir is a light bodied wine that will pair wonderfully with your Easter dinner. Its bright acidity makes it versatile and food friendly…and pairs well with most meat, fish and vegetarian dishes.

The Prince of Pinot: 89 Points· Moderate reddish purple hue in the glass. The nose is flush with earthy flora and savory herb aromas. The palate is more fruity, offering middleweight spiced cherry flavor with a pinch of smoky oak. Very sleek and silky with invisible tannins.

The Prince of Pinot: 88-89 Points “Moderate light cherry color in the glass. Aromas of red cherry, spice, and Herbs de Provence. Light in weight, but flavorful, with a good mid palate attack of cherry and raspberry fruits complimented by a hint of oak. Light on its feet and easy to cozy up to, with a refreshing cut of acidity on the finish.”
