Wine of the Week


   Simple Life is a concept from Don Sebastiani & Sons. The family has been involved with wine in Sonoma County since Samuele made his first 500 gallons of wine, sold it out of his cart, and married a saloon keepers daughter. They now own more than twenty brands of wine and spirits. Simple Life, pretty much sums up the philosophy behind the brand...simplify...unplug...unstress. Their roots may be Italian, but they believe in the Scandinavian idea of "hygge" (hugge), which means to do things that make you happy, relax and find a happy place. This Pinot Noir is from vineyards around Clarksburg, and are from clones that have smaller berry clusters which provide more concentrated flavors.  Bright Cranberry in color with aromatics involving raspberry, strawberry and rose petals.  The palate is medium bodied with balanced flavors of raspberry, cranberry and hints of oak.  The finish is smooth, supple and simple.
   Keep it simple; Caprese salad with a Balsamic dressing, or Pasta with Arugula, Pesto, Prosciutto and Burrata. Better yet, grab a glass, a blanket and a book, put on some music and keep it Simple.
