SF Chronicle takes a look at the 2011 In Pursuit of Balance tasting
Here’s what they had to say:
Monday’s “In Pursuit of Balance” event in San Francisco was crowded with such a roster of writerly types that its particulars will be only too well covered. The question at hand: How do you achieve balance (which is, and isn’t, a code for moderate alcohol) in Pinot Noir? It’s a topic being chewed on a whole lot these days.
I’ll share those tasting notes another time (OK, one tip: Chanin) but clearly there is an ever greater expectation of balance at the top end of the winemaking roster. What to say but: Amen.
