DUTTON GOLDFIELD PINOT NOIR "REDWOOD RIDGE", WILLIAM WESLEY VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2014
NVWE Notes: Grown on a ridge famous for lacing grapes with hard-edged minerality, this is a remarkably fruit-dominant wine of pristine focus and pin-point balance. The aromas are a deep and forthcoming perfume of wild boysenberry, blueberry, black raspberry, dried cranberry, red apple skin, candied rose, orange marmalade, coriander, leather, toffee and dark earth scents. The texture proves dense yet the flavors are just as chiseled and expressive on the palate, while piquant freshness creates a near-ideal dinner balance. The finish is a lingering blast of blueberry, black raspberry, sweet tobacco, cinnamon stick, baking-spice, mace and leather flavors that push back substantial tannic grip and the expected mineral undertones. It will only grow more exciting with cellar-time. 278 cases made.
This is the first vintage of this designated wine, grown on a high-elevation vineyard called William Wesley, near Annapolis. Cherry, raspberry and a touch of smoke create synergy around a medium-bodied core of soft, velvety texture and a crisp seasoning of white pepper.
