Wine Review: This black rose colored Pinot Noir from the Devil’s Gulch Vineyard opens with a musty old wood and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and a little juicy. The flavor profile is strawberry rhubarb with notes of cherry-cola and red beets. I also detected hints of smoky oak and a touch of minerality. The finish is dry, well managed and fades away nicely. This Pinot is a food friendly wine and will nicely accompany many dishes. I would pair it with sauteed Bavarian weisswurst with bacon and apple sauerkraut. Enjoy – Ken (Wine Club Only)
Winemaker Notes: The 2013 vintage was another great one at Devil’s Gulch. The first look at the dark ruby wine in the glass tells you this will be a packed wine. The nose greets you with its signature woodsy notes, backing up wild blackberry and bramble. The wine is particularly lush this vintage, with the sweet dark berry compote flavors accented by rhubarb pie, surrounded by chewy but well resolved tannins. As the rich finish continues on, the berries and redwood brush linger decadently until your next sip. Prove Mark's "what grows together goes together" saying true by trying this with some of the meats from Devil’s Gulch, or your own local quail, rabbit or lamb on the barbeque.
