Surprisingly darkly colored. This is intensely perfumed and distinctly varietal with wonderful sweet oak, briar, stem, herb and floral aromas accenting the core of black cherry fruit. Silky and broad in the mouth on entry this immediately reveals a supple core of bold cherry/black cherry/boysenberry fruit. There are some dusty tannins that still show youthfully but this is very well balanced and delightfully easy to drink. The back end and finish reveal a touch of minerality that is refreshing along with some sweetened and spice from oak. This lacks a little bit of complexity and is a tiny bit chunky but is deliciously drinkable. 91pts

Good deep red. Blackberry, licorice and violet on the slightly liqueur-like nose. Silky on entry, then a bit youthfully imploded, with good juicy energy to the dark flavors of blackberry, black cherry, violet and spices. A note of sassafras gives ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Medium translucent rim to pink to clear. A very focused, linear nose showcases rhubarb, black cherry, blue fruit, blackberry jam and crunchy mineral finished off with violet aromas. Cooling and refreshing as it enters the palate, this medium-bodied p... Cory Gowan. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Dutton-Goldfield Pinot Noir Dutton Ranch 750ml

Winemaker's Notes - The 2009 offering is exactly what we're looking for in the Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir: the luscious berry fruit so indicative of the Russian River Valley, unctuous tannins, and an almost candied richness, all on a palate that's fresh, bright and balanced. In the nose, it shows blackberry, black cherry and a touch of sandalwood; it's a bit darker than many years due to the long growing season, and the maturing of our spectacular Marty's vineyard. It delivers as promised in the mouth, with dark blackberry and cranberry fruit, a touch of nutmeg spice, and wonderfully plush tannins. The combination of solidity and suppleness is striking, and the structure and acid freshness carries an almost sweet boysenberry finish for minutes in the mouth. Try this wine with sharp cheeses as an aperitif, or with almost any food you love--that's the nature of great Pinot: don't sweat it, just drink it.
