“Love is the vital essence that pervades and permeates, from the center to the circumference, the graduating circles of all thought and action. Love is the talisman of human weal and woe — the open sesame to every soul.” — Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Wine Harlots are in love with Talisman Red Dog Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir 2007. We might even consider the wine to be our lucky talisman. It’s world-class pinot noir. If you’re drinking it now, give it an hour or so to open up, or run it through an aeratorto fully show the beauty of this wine. The wine is clear dark ruby with an amazing nose of ripe fruit with flavors of blackberries, cherries and blueberries. The mouthfeel is rich and elegant, like being draped in a red velvet cape. The perfect pairing is Brown Sugar & Mustard Glazed Planked Alaska Salmon with Mushroom Risotto. The music match is “Lucky” by Randi Driscoll from the album of the same name. Wine Harlots encourage you to get your own lucky talisman.Talisman Red Dog Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir, that is.
