Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield opens with a dark chocolate and strawberry bouquet with hints of oak, cranberry, and loam. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is acai, dried strawberry and stony minerality blend with notes of cedar and cola. We also detected some hints of black tea, black pepper, and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is dry, and its flavors, acidity, and fine tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Pinot with a lamb burger. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This decadent wine exudes richness and complexity right away in the nose, leading with dried cranberry and black cherry enrobed in herbs de Provence and redwood duff on a misty morning. The mouth follows through with waves of berry compote and fruit leather, lifted by bright acidity. Baking spices and black tea carry the finishing notes, riding on chewy but fine tannins. With the wine’s combination of friendly lushness and structure, it's great for enjoying now with robust meat dishes (especially those with an herbal element) and assertive cheeses like parmesan or aged Gouda. It will also be a nice candidate for your cellar to check out the progression over the next ten years.
