Great Wines From Philo Ridge Vineyards/Anderson Valley/Zinfandel With Stark's Steak And Seafood
It's a rainy Thursday,and When it rains I seek out great Zinfandel and great steaks.We will head on down to Stark's Steak and Seafood,with these great wines from Philo Ridge Vineyards.First let's check out the tasting notes and history of these very special wines. Philo Ridge Vineyards, located in the beautiful hills of the Anderson Valley in Mendocino County. We make small, handcrafted lots of eleven wines for a total of 2500 cases per year. Our award winning wines are produced by sustainable farming practices from vineyards in Mendocino County. Philo Ridge Vineyards takes pride in making very approachable Zinfandel. This is not an over-the-top jammy or high alcohol style. 2012 was an exceptional growing year: not many big temperature swings, little frost, and no rain. Blackberries, cherries, and soft pepper spice with a lingering finish and brambly aromas. The higher acidity makes it a versatile food wine. This is our first wine from this vineyard and we are expecting great things. 100% vegan. We also opened the Primitivo and Pinot Noirs from this amazing winery. The Primitivo is an old world varietal that gives a nose of blackberry, cinnamon stick, and mulled apples. The mouth is ripe mixed berries, dark chocolate, and a spice finish. A wine to pair with hearty dishes, pizza, and anything Italian. 100% Vegan. i enjoy the great cuisine at Stark's as often as I can. Casually elegant with an upscale feel, Stark’s Steak & Seafood serves up classic fare with a modern approach. Stark’s features sustainable seafood, Certified Angus Beef® brand, Prime and Natural, in-house dry-aged beef, and American Kobe.
