QUICK SIP: Joseph Phelps | Fogdog | Pinot Noir | Freestone Vineyards | Sonoma Coast | California | 2010 | $35 | 89 pts

Fog Dog '10Here’s a spirited Pinot Noir from Joseph Phelps’ Freestone Vineyards, located in the cool and rugged Sonoma Coast region just inland from the Pacific coastline. Aromas of huckleberries and anise lead to flavors of ripe red berries, allspice, and lavender, all rendered fresh and vibrant by zingy acids that embody the Sonoma Coast’s cool fog and bracing breezes. Medium bodied and deeply textured, this wine pairs beautifully with wild Alaskan salmon.  (Available at Total Wine and other fine wine merchants.)
