Ponzi Vineyard Tavola Pinot Noir 2009

“Going to trial with a lawyer who considers your whole life-style a Crime in Progress is not a happy prospect.”  —  Hunter S. Thompson

If you’re going to fall for a Ponzi scheme, this is the one wine crime you’ll be more than happy to do the time for.  Ponzi Vineyard Tavola Pinot Noir 2009 is a wickedly good pinot for a criminally low price.  The fruit flavors of cherry, currant and raspberry are stealthy matched with earthy wood notes.  Ponzi has created a pinot noir that is guilty of the conspiracy of deliciousness.  The perfect pairing is Bacon Wrapped Young Rabbit with Aged Fruit Pesto, Wild Mushroom Flan & Fresh Coriander Froth created by Chef Morou.

The details: 13.7% alcohol.  Screw-top closure.  Varietal: pinot noir.  Appellation: Willamette Valley.  LIVE certified sustainable.  Suggested retail $25 USD available directly from Ponzi or select distributors.  Actually retail ranges from $18-30.  National distribution by Wilson Daniels.  This wine was provided as media sample facilitated by the distributor.

The music match is “The Perfect Crime #2” from the Decemberists from the album The Crane Wife.  If you’re going to turn to a life of crime, make it a wine crime.  If you’re scheming for a great glass of wine, make it Ponzi.
