Dutton Goldfield 2012 Pinot Noir Dutton Ranch

Dutton-Goldfield only releases a 100% single-vineyard wine when the yield is outstanding and the 2012 Freestone Hill Pinot Noir is nothing short of that. The wine is incredibly elegant and bold with a complex set of aromas leading with blackberry, violet, and a coriander-like note that Dutton-Goldfield refers to as “Freestone Spice.” On the palate, the flavors combine red currant, cranberry and tart cherry, with prominent hints of cardamom. The finish is long and more complex with each additional sip. [+]
