Paul Hobbs Pinot Noir from Patagonia

People in Acton (one in particular) give me a lot of grief for saying that Pinot Noir is my “desert island” wine. In other words, if stranded on a desert island with only one grape to choose from, I would drink Pinot. That was true when I wrote it a couple of months ago, and… Read More

But I don’t want it to overpower the simple, unique flavors of the chicken. I want it to be… Read More
