Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Dutton Goldfield is an easy going quaffer. It opens with a very attractive black plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced, elegant and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with notes of black tea and hints of red raspberry and strawberry. The finish is dry and it fades away nicely. The Panel felt that they could drink a lot of this Pinot. They suggested pairing it with fresh Norwegian sliced salmon or sushi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This vineyard wonderfully represents the wild beauty and intensity of the Sonoma Coast. The 2014 is especially friendly and welcoming even in its youth. The succulent, rich blackberry and black cherry compote perfume of the nose jumps out of the glass to wrap you in its assertive embrace. An underlay of cedar and top notes of allspice add savory interest to the fruit. The lush berry flavors continue in the mouth, bringing on layers of black cherry, raspberry, and blackberry, along with sandalwood accents. The wine manages to be dark and broody and tart and bright at the same time, always one of our favorite aspects of a wine. The broad tannins carry the long bramble-berry finish to a sweet end. The depth of the wine makes it perfect for heartier cool-weather fare, like grilled flank steaks with salsa verde or Italian sausages with polenta.
