DUTTON GOLDFIELD PN AZAYA '14
DUTTON GOLDFIELD PINOT NOIR, AZAYA RANCH VINEYARD, MARIN COUNTY 2014
NVWE Notes: Richly savory and full of focused fruit, this is an impressive Pinot from a seldom explored appellation. The nose is a rich melange of dark cherry, dark plum, Bing cherry, cherry pit, Victorian toffee, vanilla pipe tobacco, leather and dried herb scents. Rich body and substantial grip raise the scale on the palate, as does a lingering finish packed with Amarena cherry, red boysenberry, blood orange, peppercorn, leather, nut husk and tobacconist-shop flavors. Delicious now with rich roasts and wintry stews, it should improve for several more years. 375 cases produced.
