Dutton-Goldfield Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir 2013

$39.99

Fantastic new Pinot from Sonoma's famed Dutton Ranch! After working closely together as winemaker and grape grower since 1990, Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield merged their talents to create Dutton-Goldfield Winery in 1998. Their mission is to produce vineyard-designated Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their home in the western Russian River Valley. The wines express the unique qualities of fruit from hand-selected vineyards and the work of an appreciative winemaker, and this brand new release certainly showcases that. The Dutton-Goldfield 2013 Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir has deep black fruit character, while the nose greets you with lilacs, followed by black cherry, dark chocolate and a streak of blueberry. In the mouth, the black cherry dominates the core of sweetness, complemented by black tea, raspberry and fine-grained tannins. The richness of the wine makes it a perfect match for foie gras, glazed duck, barbecued shrimp, eggplant parmesan and Jarlsberg and Asiago cheeses.

Blackberry, cherry, raspberry, cranberry, oak and hints of licorice. Good structure and moderate tannins.

In contrast with the 2012, this wine is disappointing. From the appearance, it's comes across as light and the palette is consistent. It severely lacks texture and depth. It's ok, but not worth buying.
