Dutton Goldfield McDougall Vineyard Pinot Noir

The maturing vines at McDougall are providing us ever more luscious fruit each vintage. While this wine is always a great candidate for your cellar, proving to be beautifully ageworthy over the years, 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. Don’t forget to get an extra case for your cellar so you can taste its progress over the next decade and beyond.
