    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2011 vintage provided an extraordinarily fresh and sleek Dutton Ranch Pinot. Though the fundamental bright berry core and silky Green Valley tannins are always part and parcel of this wine, there is a particularly vivid aromatic freshness this year, which carries through in its bright acid and low alcohol in the mouth. Red berries combined with black cherry fruit in the nose is underlain with candied rhubarb and a hint of sandalwood and cinnamon. In the mouth, the cherry flavors are carried through on the wonderfully fine tannins--like warm cherry vanilla ice cream in a glass. The finish is exceptionally lengthy, and serves up the accompanying sweet berry cream pie.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine's complexity is immediately apparent, but it comes off as hard-edged when first poured. With air, the toughness of the structure begins to rustle toward fruit, still chewy, now relieved by cool scents of kelp and spice. This should reward with cellar time.
