Wonderment Wines Dutton-Campbell Pinot Noir 2015 Review

I recently received a few bottles of Wonderment Wines. I decided that I would try the flagship Dutton-Campbell Pinot Noir 2015 first. What a great choice! The color is a bright, translucent ruby with a pale pink rim. The nose is not shy, it rises from the glass to greet you with cedar shavings, graphite, raspberry and hints of fresh baked bread. Very inviting. The flavors are bold yet ethereal. Rich fruit up front; blackberry, ripe cherry, tart cranberry that fades into an earthy layer with notes of leather and tobacco. Silky tannins. It has a long warming finish with a touch of oak. You will need a little patience as the wine did not come into its own until about two hours after opening. But it was worth the wait. It paired great with flatbread pizza. But it begs to be put together with the holiday turkey. This wine is a great example of how good a Pinot Noir can be. As good as it is now, it’s youth is evident. A year or two in the cellar would do wonders. I give it 91 points IMHO with great potential.
