Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield is very good! It opens with a fragrant red raspberry and pomegranate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, moderately acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and strawberry blend with hints of cinnamon and cherry-cola. The finish is dry and its flavors drift along for a very long time. I would pair this impressive Pinot with broiled Scottish salmon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The long 2016 season suited our McDougall Pinot well, giving our big-boned Sonoma Coast wine great balance and acidity. Juicy aromas of black cherry and dried cranberry are underlain with herbal bay leaf, spicy floral geranium, a whip of red licorice, and a dash of black tea. Candied raspberry and cherry fill your mouth at first sip, providing a solid core of structured fruit around which sandalwood, granite, and cola wrap their savory duskiness. Spicy berry crumble pie rides on firm tannins on the lengthy finish. Go big with flavors to match this bold wine, like a spice-marinated butterflied leg of lamb.
