This is a terrific Pinot Noir. From a cool hillside vineyard at the far western edge of the Russian River AVA - barely in the climatic range of grape-growing feasibility - it requires the right set of conditions to ripen properly. But it must have done so in 2005 since this is a rich, unusually complex, Burgandian-style Pinot Noir. Captivating perfume of ripe cherry, black raspberry, and a melange of spices and floral notes; still tannic but with a velvety, regal, mouth-coating feel. Outstanding length and depth. Low in alcohol for a California Pinot, yet seamless and full from start to extended finish - a great combination of grace and power. Expensive, but exceptionally high quality

High-toned raspberry and cherry aromas and flavors. Rich and silky. Very elegant wine.

Silky wine with blackberry, black cherry, and raspberry flavors. Floral aromas add a nice approachability to the wine.

I definitely would give this Dutton-Goldfield 2007 Pinot Noir the Gold! A fantastic very long and flavorful Pinot. Wonderful aromas of cherry, a very subtle hint of flower giving way to a nice spice enticing you to taste. The cherry flavors are wonderfully big and juicy and the spice also comes through as an excellent compliment to the fresh, deep, long-lasting cherry. A gorgeous ruby red color and an excellent wine. I'll be getting more of this one!

The vineyard is in the extreme, "true" Sonoma Coast, and it requires a warmer year to fully ripen. This is showing a minty, herbal edge to the cherries and blackberries, and high acidity.

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Dutton-Goldfield Mcdougall Vineyard Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2005 : PINOT REPORT REVIEW: 94 POINTS Medium ruby color; deep, complex red cherry aromas with lots of spicy notes; ripe and deep, with red cherry, spice and some forest floor flavors; sweet oak; great structure and balance; long finish. Deep and complex, this Pinot would really sing with a mushroom chicken or pork dish. 132 cases made.WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 92 POINTS From the translucent, see-through ruby color to the intricate cola, cherry and toasted coconut flavors, this delicately powerful in a Burundian way. Fells silky and light-bodied in the mouth, but there's nothing scanty about the wine's powerful intensity of fruit, spice and oak. Best now and for a couple of years. Wine Enthusiast August 2007 S.H.NVWE NOTES: Powerfully constructed, young and slow to unfold, this brilliant Pinot needs airing to fully reveal its class and distinctive personality. It is a wine with deep secrets, offering a gutsy, but surprisingly harmonious mix of dark cherry, boysenberry, dried orange, dry red rose, powdered sumac, leather, smoke, and minerals. A similar impression of masculine power, savory spice and lovely fruitiness graces the mid-palate and the extremely long finish. Certain to improve for at least five more years and probably eight or ten, it is a wine worth the wait. In the near-term, if opened in the afternoon, it can already provide great pleasure at dinner time.DUTTON-GOLDFIELD MCDOUGALL VINEYARD PINOT NOIR SONOMA COAST 2005
