Though we’ve had Pinots from Coyote Run before, and they were fine, I don’t remember ever being quite as impressed with them as we both were with the 2009 Estate Pinot Noir, which is only 19.95 (not bad for Pinot). Though it’s a lighter Pinot, not your blockbuster Californian, it still seemed very wow.
I don’t know if it was the wine temperature, or the food match (pan-seared salmon with mushrooms and spinach–a good and easy recipe, but at least double the veggie amounts), or if 2009 was a good Pinot year (like it says on the bottle).
Whatever. That night, it seemed the perfect wine.
