2008 Toad Hollow Pinot Noir Goldies Vines

I can always count on recommendations from my wine friends when it comes to great wine. Toad Hollow wine at a price tag of $12.99( 1st Avenue Wine House) was in my opinion an absolute steal! Before you drink the wine though you need to understand "The Legend Of Toad Hollow"

The story of Dr Toad and The Dancing Badger who retired to the hollow is hilarious with or without a glass of wine. As you read the story you can really picture these 2 fine gentlemen and their friendship. Now before you proceed any further I am requiring you to click on the link Legend Of Toad Hollow but first a glass of wine. I would agree Toad Hollow creates some seriously great wine.

In the glass the aroma of black cherry and spice really treats the nose. Earthy leather, some red berry...... we have a good one here!

Talk about some great fruit used to create this wine. Black cherry very dominate at the beginning of the taste. In the middle the spice warms your mouth. The finish showcases the raspberry and the black cherry with a long juicy finish. Outstanding wine Toad Hollow!

If your planning a visit to the California Wine Country then Toad Hollow is a must stop. The tasting room located at 409A Headlsburg Ave in downtown Healdsburg, is open everyday from 10:30 to 5:30. Treat yourself to great wine.
