Dutton-Goldfield Pinot Noir Marin County Devil's Gulch 2007
- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 10/24/09
Beautiful pinot nose of florals, strawberry and raspberry with some spice. The palate matches with hints of mint. Very nice! It finishes on a sweet berry note. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/15/10
The 2007 Freestone Hill Vineyard Pinot is a step up from the excellent 2006, and nearly the equal of the sensational 2005. Very forward and youthful nose at this point, caressing the nasal passages with a complex mix of black cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, rose hips, and spice. Beautifully balanced despite its richness, which is a Dutton-Goldfield trademark. Long, lovely finish.
I think this is the equal of the outstanding 2005 McDougall. It shares with that wine the beautifully forward, complex aromatics of deep cherry, plum, charcoal, Asian spice, roses, and white flowers. As in 2005, it seems more floral than the other Dutton-Goldfield single-vineyard Pinots. It is still youthful (July 2010 tasting) with some tannin to resolve, but it's already showing great elegance and length. As it was with the 2005's, it's a tough pick at this point among the 2007 Dutton-Goldfield Pinot Noirs.
Excellent wine. All my guest loved every sip. It was a hit at my dinner party. The pinot nose of florals, raspberry and strawberry and the touch of spice makes this wine, a must have. 12/20/10
