2007 Flying Goat Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard: I enjoyed this beauty with rack of lamb at Bouchon in Santa Barbara. What a perfect pairing. Winemaker: A dark garnet center shimmers to ruby colored edges predicting a depth of character. The beautiful clarity of the wine delights, as a swirl produces a sophisticated bouquet of spice, rose petal and meaty nuances. A big burst of fruit on the first sip full of raspberry, some ripe red apple, and more spicy clove-allspice notes are then intermingled with mocha and sour cherry. A yin-yang of flavors continues to dance across the palate in this wonderfully structured and integrated wine. Ready to enjoy now, although decanting to aerate prior to drinking is definitely recommended to unleash the lushness of this wine.
