Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield is very good. It opens with an attractive fragrant cola, black raspberry, and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and savory. The flavor profile is a loam and black raspberry blend with notes of cola, stewed black plum, and stony minerality. I also detected hints of oak and black pepper. The finish is dry, and its mild tannins and flavors linger nicely. This Burgundian styled Pinot would pair very nicely with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The even 2019 season gave us nicely ripened stems in our Green Valley grapes, so it seemed like a perfect year to amp up the stem inclusion in our Emerald Ridge Pinot. This extra woodsy-ness is apparent in the leading aromas of cedar and redwood, and the savory spice quality that frames the brooding berry core of fruit. In the mouth, juicy bramble berries and blueberries are wrapped in elegant, fine-grained tannins. The sleek texture and mountain fruit are backed by lively acidity, while baking spices complete the lengthy finish.
