Note: Last Spring the Undercurrent Restaurant presented a Duckhorn Vineyards virtual wine dinner that included three wines and a three course dinner. The dinner was one of the best wine pairing events we have ever had. Although the menu didn’t look impressive, every item was unique and could only be described as a work of culinary art. The chef really hit it out of the park with this dinner!!! Following is our review of the Duckhorn Vineyards wine served with the second course.
Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Clear ruby color with a light brownish red rim. Fruity, earthy, vanilla and sweet spice aromas. Slightly zesty entry, dusty mouthfeel, medium body and a 150-grit texture. Raspberry, cinnamon and spicy clove flavors with lesser amounts of ripe cherry. Bright acidity, soft tannins and a medium length juicy ripe raspberry tasting finish. Nicely balanced, juicy and somewhat bold California Pinot Noir. This wine paired perfectly with the food, even the cheese was a symphony with the wine. We enjoyed it and called it a nice California Pinot Noir.
