...medium-bodied, has saturated flavors of black cherry and boysenberry, and hints of forest floor and tea leaves.

90Stephen Tanzer

Dark cherry, berries, mocha and sassafras on the nose, lifted by rose petal and mint. Juicy, brown-spicy and energetic, showing good definition to its cranberry, black cherry and forest floor flavors. Lively and very easy to drink, finishing with a firm spine of tannins and excellent spicy length.



Dutton Goldfield is in Sebastopol, California. It was founded in 1998 when Steve Dutton, a fifth-generation California farmer, and Dan Goldfield, a research chemist who later earned an enology degree at U.C. Davis, decided to make Pinot Noir. Today the estate includes some 80 separate vineyards in the western Russian River Valley. The estate specializes in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though it also makes small amounts of Syrah and Zinfandel.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
