Back in the 1940s, André Tchelistcheff proved that pinot noir could thrive in Rutherford, producing wines that were still fresh at the turn of the century. El Molino continues to show that the region can produce dynamic pinot noir, this one a contrast of transparent stem tannins and chewy fruit-skin spice. It’s juicy and mature, hinting at pressed roses and other secondary notes, bringing to mind a range of foods to accompany its meaty, salty refinement—from sole sautéed with white wine and capers to roast monkfish, or a simple poached chicken.
