    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A dry, robust Pinot Noir. Starts out a little rustic, with big tannins and acidity that give the cherries a sour candy taste. But it's complex, with a meaty edge, and elegantly constructed. Gets better as it breathes in the glass. Drink now-2014.

    A perfumed and beautifully elegant nose speaks of both red and blue pinot fruit that slides seamlessly into rich, round and quite supple flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth fell as the abundant dry extract imparts a velvety quality to the delicious yet serious finish that offers both good depth and length. Lovely.
