A Winemaker's Dozen
From Napa-Sonoma Tour, 12 Bottles to Remember; Going for the Charbono
by Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher

Nalle Winery Pinot Noir 2003, Hopkins Ranch, Russian River Valley We've been fans of Nalle's Zinfandel for years, but this was a revelation: like fresh, ripe raspberry-cherry fruit warm from the sun and bursting inside your mouth. Light, fruity, with some spice and earth and totally winning, it's the perfect wine for salmon. It makes us smile just to write about it.
