Paul Dolan Vineyards is perfectly at home in Mendocino County, home to more organic vineyards than the rest of the state of California combined. All of their vineyards are farmed organically, and most Biodynamically. The wines are carefully made in a holistic, natural style that brings out an essence of purity and integrity that captures their sense of terroir, an inward reflection of their intrinsic beauty.

Their 2012 Pinot Noir comes from a single vineyard in the beautiful, bucolic, cool climate Potter Valley of northeastern Mendocino. To me, this is Pinot Noir as it was meant to be. The bouquet is a literal walk in the woods, with layers of damp earth, leather and pine cone, forest berries and autumn leaves. In the mouth, there’s a lovely core of fresh strawberry fruit and red berry flavors that carry through vibrantly into the complexly layered finish. I also find an element beyond flavor, an element of life and energy that weaves beyond the substance and brings forth a sense of vitality and liveliness. Try it tonight, and bring out the lively essence of your evening meal. It’s truly an uplifting experience
