Sharing two special wines that I enjoyed over NYE dinner at Scalini Fedeli in Chatham, NJ

1) Napa Cellars Pinot Noir Napa Valley (2009) (

Napa Cellars pinor noir

Winemaker Joe Shirley’s notes:

The 2009 Pinot Noir has rich layers of homemade cherry pie including aromas of ripe bing cherries, graham crackers and baking spices. Velvety flavors glide over the palate with long, lasting fruit and spice characteristics. The wine ends with firm, ripe tannins and a malt and toffee finish.

2) Caposaldo Moscato (Region: Veneto, Italy)

Lacaposaldo Moscato

Winemaker’s notes:

This sweet Frizzante Italian white has sweet aromas of tangerines, mango and honey with sweet yet fresh flavors in the mouth of more fruits and vanilla.
