Dutton Estate Chardonnay Russian River Valley Kyndall's Reserve Dutton Ranch 2006

External Review by AOC Fine Wines:

The wine has a deep ruby color with aromas of dark fruits and hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium full-bodied with a smooth texture flavors of boysenberry black raspberry and Bing cherry shows through. Undertones of caramelized sugar vanilla and graham cracker delicately linger on the palate.

Dutton Estate Winery is in the Russian River Valley located near the small town of Sebastopol. Once a dominant apple-growing region, Sebastopol is now a destination hide-away and home to the winery’s founders, Joe and Tracy Dutton. Joe and Tracy’s agricultural heritage is deeply rooted in Sebastopol, as Tracy’s great-grandparents began farming apples in the 1920’s and today continues growing apples and grapes at the family’s recognized farm and food production facility in Forestville at Kozlowski Farms. Joe is co-owner of Dutton Ranch, which was founded in 1964 by his parents. Today, Dutton Ranch farms 1150 acres of grapes and 150 acres of apples, all within the Green Valley-Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations. The concept for Tracy and Joe to begin producing wine in 1995 was to build a business into which their three daughters could grow and carry on family traditions. While Joe continues to manage the vineyards at Dutton Ranch, Tracy spends her days managing the winery. It’s our passion at Dutton Estate Winery to produce unparalleled vineyard designated pinot noir, chardonnay and syrah. Read less
