VintageVino Pick of the Day: Dutton-Goldfield Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Dutton Ranch, 2007
I tasted this wine with Christopher Pappe, National Sales Manager for D-G, about a week ago and I had the chance to revisit this wine again today. The color is a bright cherry red with a clear quality. Aromatically the wine has a big bouquet, flavors just jump from the glass. I was standing about 3' from the glass at one point and had no problem smelling the fruit aromas. On the palate the wine is fairly delicate, but not wimpy. The flavors are bold, there is great acidity and the over all feel is like velvet. Berries and cinnamon with good minerality. This wine is dry, but not tart. Finished quite long, balanced and smooth. Highly recommend this one.
