2013 Murphy-Goode Pinot Noir
It's a Red Wine Sunday tonight and I have opened up a 2013 Murphy- Goode California Pinot Noir. Produced up in Healdsburg, California this wine blends grapes from the central coast region.
The aroma - a bit of smoke and vanilla. On the tongue - Black Cherries predominate with some other great fruit forward flavours. Light and smooth - perfect for the summer temps we have been seeing out here on the left coast.
I tried the 2008 Pinot from the winery a few years ago and loved it as well as a Red Blend that the winery produced just last year, so I am not surprised that this vintage is superb.
Gotta love the back label as it states "Like a new cover of your favorite song, our Pinot noir is unexpected, mysterious and wonderfully familiar." Wow - great description.
This should go great with the Salmon that will be grilled later and the Mango Salsa that will top the Salmon.

My Review of the 2008 vintage -----> well worth the price
So happy to have picked up a copy of the Twintone Years! I've got #2098 of 8000. Hmm - not really a "Limited" edition?.
