Dutton Goldfield 2017 Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir Russian River Valley ($45)
When I reach for a Pinot Noir, I want two things: vibrant, aromatic fruit and a crisp, refreshing palate. I am not looking for more oak-influenced flavors than fruit, and I certainly want to avoid wines that are so concentrated, full-bodied and high in alcohol that it is as if I am not drinking Pinot Noir at all.

This Dutton Goldfield Pinot Noir has fresh blackberry and red cherry fruit, and its layered violet and spice flavors play a lovely supporting role. This would be a fun wine to pair with grilled manchego and mushroom pizzas for an alfresco dinner party.
