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

A clear, medium+ ruby colour. Clean, developing nose of strawberry essence, sour cherry and sweet spice. A dry, full-bodied wine that has a smooth velvet texture. There is plenty of fresh acidity in this one, 13.5% alc with moderate tannins. Ripe flavours of red berries, plum fruit and red cherry. Easy finish. Drink now 89/100.

A superb and fairly-priced Pinot Noir, not far behind the quality level of the outstanding single-vineyard Pinot's from Dutton-Goldfield. Beautifully balanced, concentrated, energetic wine, delicious even in its infancy. Perfumed nose and flavors highlighted by candied cherry, plum, strawberry, rose blossoms, Asian herbs, charcoal. Round and elegant in the mouth even at this early age, and with a long, fruit-filled finish.

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

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.

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.

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

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. It may come with a price tag lower than its cellarmates, but this offering earns its spurs by avoiding the burgeoning acidity that gives those wines a somewhat narrow cast. Nicely focused on red cherry fruit and a touch fuller in feel if less polished than the rest of its crew, this one is a good choice for now while those others mature.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
