Etty’s Wine Pick: Folk Machine Pinot Noir 2009

This fragrant and light bodied Pinot Noir from California’s Central Coast drinks like a Bourgogne Rouge, nixing high alcohol, over-extraction, and sweet oak in favor of vivid acidity, pretty pomegranate flavors, and a bit of neutral oak for texture. Sourced from vineyards in Monterey County and Potter Valley, this is perfect everyday Pinot. Straightforward, varietally on point, and super affordable. Pair with a seared salmon salad with yellow wax beans, shaved fennel, and sieved egg or grilled turkey burgers with bibb lettuce, chipotle mayo and pickled onions.
