Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield is very very good! Everyone that tried it loved it. It opens with a fragrant pomegranate and cranberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum and pomegranate blend with hints of red beet and cola. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. This Pinot is extremely food friendly and would pair well with Colorado lamb chops. It won't last very long! Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2013 was nearly a mirror image of the fantastic 2012 vintage. The nose is dark plum and black cherry, with marionberries, lilac and sandalwood rounding out the aromatics. In the mouth, the candied cassis, red raspberry and dusky rose are followed by a long toffee and spice finish, lifted by bright Bing cherry. As has become a trademark of this wine, the back and forth between the dark and bright nature of the wine keeps you coming back for more. Try it with a goat Gouda cheese or roasted game birds.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
