Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield is very good. It opens with a fragrant mild strawberry bouquet with hints of cinnamon, red cherry and plum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle raspberry and red plum blend with hints of cherry and some light toasty oak. The finish is dry and its flavors are a little prolonged with some tingling minerality. The Panel felt this Pinot was young and would benefit from some cellar aging. If you can’t wait, decant it for a bit and pair it with an apricot glazed pork roast or barbecue shrimp with fried rice. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The beautiful, warm 2014 vintage brought out the sweet floral and fruit notes of our Angel Camp Vineyard, producing an especially rich wine this vintage. As in other years, our Anderson Valley site hung a bit longer than most of our Green Valley pinots, with the fruit harvesting in our last group of sites, accentuating the lusciousness of the fruit. The nose leads with its characteristic dark plum fruit, along with blackberry, roses and violets, enticing you to inhale deeply and blissfully. The mouth is full and rich, with candied berry and marinated black cherry flavors bursting out. The impressively long finish lingers these plush berry bowl flavors, lifted with a light toffee accent. This would be a great pairing with a tangy goat cheese to juxtapose the sweet, rich fruit, or go for decadence with a rich veal chop and mushroom risotto.
