Dutton Estate Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Dutton Estate Thomas Road Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006 : NVWE NOTES: This delicious bottling is at once paler in color and more expressive in character than is typical for this vineyard. The aromas are a focused, elegantly balanced, fruit dominated mix of Bing cherry, wild strawberry, dry red rose, smoke and roasted grain. It has a delightful impression of delicacy on the palate, but attractively rich body and persistent flavors, led by wild strawberry, dried orange, yellow rose, coriander seed and roasted grain. Lovely now and beautifully food-worthy, it will grow more elegant over the next two years or so. 352 cases produced.DUTTON ESTATE THOMAS ROAD PINOT NOIR RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2006

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

The Jewell block posesses excellent ripe red fruit up front and a smooth slightly tannic finish. Has aromas of raspberries and a hint of spice.

This was a great Pinot Noir. Right up there with, but not equal to, the likes of the 2003 Muller Emily's Cuvee Pinot Noir. It has a very pale garnet color with aromas of cherry and mint. Equal flavors of cherry and mint on the palate with an unexpected hint of herby white fruit on the finish. Maybe some strawberry as well. SDWC
