Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from the Russian River opens with a black raspberry bouquet with hints of pomegranate and cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum and mild oak blend with hints of pomegranate, red currant and strawberry. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair nicely with grilled mahi-mahi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dutton Ranch farms over eighty unique, separate vineyards located in the coolest areas of the Russian River Valley, primarily in the Green Valley sub-appellation, and our Dutton Ranch Pinot blend represents our vision for the character of this special region. The wine aromas are like a basket of black and Bing cherries, with a little red licorice whip weaved between. Violet blossoms and sandalwood notes frame the fruit, along with a touch of candied raspberry. In the mouth, the wine is deep and silky, with the wonderful combination of brightness and richness we love in Pinot. The cherry flavors are accented with darker black raspberry and a bit of black tea and nutmeg, along with a morsel of toffee on the lingering finish. This crowd-pleasing and food-friendly Pinot has a broad range of pairings, from smoked salmon mousse appetizers, to spice-rubbed tuna steaks.
