Some terrific pinots are coming from Zepaltas and they made a great Christmas Eve pairing with truffled mac n' cheese. Zepaltas holds back a tad on the oak with the vineyard driving the wine's profile. This makes for especially good vertical tasting [that's different years from the same winery and vineyard source]. 05, 06, and 07 from Suacci vineyard were all good with the 07 showing well what a great vintage that is. Get some soon!
