I've been drinking this wine for several vintages, but the 2007 strikes me as easily the best I've tried because of its ripeness and purity. The nose opens with jasmine-like floral aromas along with peach/pear fruit and cinammon/nutmeg spice. But as the wine airs, it seems to gain in both depth and complexity, and notes of roasted apple, yeast, and almond appear. Beautifully balanced, full and satisfying in the mouth. Fairly priced for the excellent quality.

Wonderful, well-balanced, full bodied Chardonnay from an old respected Russian River vineyard. Maybe it's because there is an actual Dutton family member involved in the winemaking that this wine is so nearly perfect. Not too much oak, not too buttery, not too anything... it's just right. Fruit forward with some apple and light apricot flavor. Tried it first at a Chardonnay only wine tasting in July, 2009 where it beat out 17 other Chardonnays including some that cost twice as much. Tried it again at the winery in August, 2009. Perfect both times.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 91 Well-structured, with rich layers of creamy fig, melon and apricot, gaining depth and complexity on the long finish. Drink now through 2011. Wine Tasting Notes In addition to the usual core of lime and tangerine fruit that the old vines always offer, rich pear and ripe apple come more to the fore. Aromas of pear, citrus and butterscotch promise the richness of this wine, and the overtones of gardenia and sandalwood foretell its complexity. In the mouth, the typical solid structure of Dutton Ranch Chardonnay carries the unctuous citrus and candied pear fruit. It is this balance of bright acidity, fresh fruit, and lushness that make Chardonnay from Dutton Ranch so special. Great as an aperitif, try it also with your favorite fowl dishes, or any grilled fish.
