DUTTON GOLDFLD PN REDWOOD '17
DUTTON GOLDFIELD PINOT NOIR "REDWOOD RIDGE" SONOMA COAST 2017
From a 32-acre site above Annapolis, this is a gorgeously memorable wine that is dark and brooding in the glass. It unveils slowly to show rose, stem, lavender and sage as well as crisp red fruit. Lifted yet structured in feel, it shows power and intensity in perfect tandem with grace and balance.Virginie Boone 4/1/2020
NVWE Notes: Bursting with intense fruit and spice, the nose of this mountain beauty centers on boysenberry, black raspberry and Italian Maraschino cherry which rise above counterpoints of peppercorn, jerk spice, star anise, dried sage, dried rosemary, graphite and a suggestion of roasted game. The fruit proves as luxuriously forthcoming as expected on the palate, delivering intensity, focus, weight, tongue-coating texture and piquant zest in fine harmony. Texturally lavish and packed with pretty spice notes, the finish seems near-endless, as the deep fruit just pushes the wine's tannins aside. If perhaps even better after four or more years of cellar-time, it provides succulent pleasure right now. 502 cases produced.
