Winemaker 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.... View More

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

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.

Dutton Goldfield
Dutton-Goldfield Winery began with a handshake in a vineyard in 1998, when longtime colleagues and friends Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield recognized a shared vision between them—to craft wines that express the personalities of their cool-climate vineyards, and which they'd enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
