DUTTON GOLDFIELD PINOT NOIR FREESTONE HILL VINEYARD RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This is yet another gorgeous and age-worthy DG Freestone Pinot. The nose melds deep, focused aromas of Bing cherry, whortleberry, pomegranate, orange oil, sumac berry, pink peppercorn, baking-spice and vanilla cream pie scents into a rich melange. It is richer still on the palate and shows a firm undercurrent of tannic grip beneath it’s rush of sweet red cherry, red plum, whortleberry, red boysenberry, dried orange peel, sumac berry, toasted grain, baking-spice and mineral flavors. The finish is ultra-long and the texture racy, yet mouth-coating. Built for classic dinners, it will compliment them already, although its best days are several years away. 478 cases produced.
This tightly wound wine opens in the glass, with intense, bright acidity that wraps around herbal, minty undertones. Blackberry, raspberry and clove give it plenty of varietal classicism, but it's the strong earthy loam and forest floor that provide intrigue and elegance. DATE PUBLISHED 5/1/2016 VIRGINIE BOONE
