Rutz Cellars Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Dutton Ranch 2004

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

After years of living in the Russian River, Keith Rutz decided to try his hand at winemaking. This Dutton Ranch bottling is made from 100% Dutton Ranch fruit, one of the top Pinot vineyards in California, that is handpicked and hand sorted. Fresh red raspberry flavors, with underlying coffee bean and earth notes.
