2009 Dutton Goldfield Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir Russian River Valley CA 13.5% $33

Surprisingly darkly colored. This is intensely perfumed and distinctly varietal, with wonderful sweet oak, briar, stem, herb and floral aromas accenting the core of black cherry fruit. Silky and broad in the mouth, this immediately reveals a supple core of bold cherry/black cherry/boysenberry fruit on entry. There are some dusty tannins that still show youth, but this is very well balanced and delightfully easy to drink. The back end and finish reveal a touch of minerality that is refreshing, along with some sweetened and spice from oak. This lacks a little bit of complexity and is a tiny bit chunky, but is deliciously drinkable. 91pts
