WHY WE LIKE IT - A great Pinot Noir value is generally impossible to find. The 2019 Matthew Fritz hits the mark.
TASTING NOTES - The wine is a medium ruby with a nose dominated by ripe wild strawberry and rose petal, and layered with soft scents of tea leaf, balsa wood, and cardamom. The palate is ripe in the mouth and filled with lush red cherry and strawberry, with traces of cured meat and white pepper in the mid-palate. The finish has mouthwatering acidity and medium tannin.
PRODUCTION NOTES - Matt Bonanno and Fritz Stuhlmuller make the blends at Stuhlmuller Vineyards in Healdsburg and bottle Matthew Fritz in Geyserville in Sonoma County. The 2017 Mathew Fritz Pinot Noir was sourced from two vineyard sites. One vineyard is located at the headwaters of the Russian River in Mendocino and the other is comprised from the rolling hill region of northern Ukiah, Redwood Valley.
PARK PLACE SOMMELIER PAIRING - Pair with roasted/grilled meats with an herbal/savory preparation, hearty stews & sauces and tomato-based sauces & stews. Try with Grilled Salmon & Fresh Herbs.
