Dutton Goldfield Emerald Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2014, Russian River Valley, CA, USA
£60.50 (inc VAT)
Blueberry, raspberry, toffee & baked spiced red apple. Steve & Dan's favourite wine.
When the winemakers tell you that this is their favourite wine and they enjoy making it more each year, you know you are on to a good thing. Dan and Steve gush over this little beauty like doting parents. And they only make 24 barrels of it, so production is as small and precious as a newborn baby.
Dutton Goldfield was born in 1998 out of a friendship between Steve Dutton, a 5th generation farmer who has worked on vineyards since the age of 5, and Dan Goldfield, a seasoned winemaker who has worked at Robert Mondavi and La Crema. Both loved the cool climate vineyards of Sonomas Russian River Valley and so decided to join forces.
