Yet another spectacular vineyard cultivated by the well-known Dutton family, the Ruxton Vineyard is a five-acre vineyard facing Southeast, high on a ridge above Occidental in the Russian River Valley. The vineyard was planted in 1972, and produces shy bearing, small clusters, tiny berries and rich, intense flavors. This wine is lush with bright flavors, and the spiciness is delicate, with a soft, open texture. High-toned,
pronounced aromatics of Meyers lemon and fleshy apricot combine with subtle oak for a lingering, intense finish. Very aromatic.
