Wine Review: This clear medium garnet colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield opens with a pomegranate and wet stone bouquet with hints of blackberry and cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, lush and fresh. The flavor profile is mulberry and red plum blend with notes of red licorice and raspberry tea. We also detected some hints of stone dust, cedar, cranberry and spice. The finish is dry, and its flavors, acidity, and polished tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a cedar plank grilled salmon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The nose is seductive and juicy with brambly blackberry and boysenberry accompanied by luscious cherry compote. Sandalwood spice and notes of dried purple flowers round out the aromatics. A berry explosion of plush and mouth filling sweet fruit follows in the mouth, with cedar and baking spice notes adding complexity. The velvety rich texture continues on to a blackberry cobbler finish. The bold, rich fruit and creamy texture match well with bold flavors like roasted game meats, barbequed pork ribs, or chicken in a mushroom cream sauce. Keep it local with a pairing of Pennyroyal Farms' Boont Corners aged goat cheese.
