Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield opens with a fragrant red cherry and cola bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe red plum with notes of pomegranate and craisin. I also picked up a hint of red raspberry. The finish is dry and its red fruit flavors drift away nicely. Our mini-tasting group suggested pairing this fruity Pinot with a lamb burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: As with our other wines, the early start to the 2016 season gave our Fox Den Pinot Noir that perfect combination of brightness and richness. The wine is especially vibrant in both the nose and mouth this vintage, leading with vivid aromas of a melange of red fruits—cherry, strawberry, and raspberry—with a pretty touch of rose petals and a savory note of rhubarb pie. Baking spice tones continue in the mouth, providing a backdrop to support a leading cast of luscious Bing cherry and Chambord. The texture is caressing and smooth, its fine tannins carrying the creamy strawberry shortcake finish to a delicious end. Any fish with a matching silky texture would make an excellent pairing. Try poached salmon or steamed sea bass.
