Winemaker Notes

Cherry Ridge juts out over the west side of Green Valley of Russian River Valley, on a south-facing hillside just north of the Petaluma Wind Gap. It is both wonderfully scenic, and a great place to grow grapes. The proverbial "warm spot in a cold area" (because of its altitude and south face), Cherry Ridge is just temperate enough to ripen Syrah in a region best known for the cold-loving Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Syrah from this climate shows focused berry fruit, lots of spice, bright acidity, intense color and silky tannins. Just over five acres are planted here to four clones of Syrah.

Another drought year leading to water stressed vines produced a richly phenolic wine further intensified with a healthy dose of whole cluster fermentation. Swirling the glass offers up dizzying aromas of freshly picked berries and mom’s delights roasting in the kitchen: blackberries, cherry pie, pepper, tobacco and bacon. The skillful addition of new wood is expressed in the subtle nuance of vanilla and smoke. A velvety pillow greets the palate, followed by luscious blackberries, balanced acidity and sturdy yet refined tannins that linger alongside pleasing notes of berry and crispy bacon.

Indelibly a food wine, this Syrah demands the attention of your hardiest recipes.

Wine Enthusiast
From a site on the western edge of Green Valley, this wine rocks in its light-bodied wrestling of white pepper and floral violet intrigue, so inviting on the nose. It opens slowly to unravel high-toned acidity and aspects of wild berry that are irresistible in their succulence and depth.

COMMENTARY: The 2014 Dutton Goldfield Cherry Ridge Vineyard Syrah is an outstanding wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is nicely-packed and long in the finish. Its jazzy aromas and flavors of bold, black fruit, oak accents, and mixed berries should pair it famously well with braised lamb. (Tasted: September 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Purple and luscious when first poured, with a vanillin scent of oak, this shows its cooler aspects with air. It comes from a south-facing site on the southwestern end of the Russian River Valley, just north of the Petaluma Gap, and feels both sunny and breezy, a delicious floral tone lifting its plump fruit. It’s a spicy, satisfying syrah for a pork chop.

Dutton-Goldfield Winery Video
Dutton-Goldfield Winery began with a handshake in a vineyard in 1998, when longtime colleagues and friends Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield recognized a shared vision between them—to craft wines that express the personalities of their cool-climate vineyards, and which they'd enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables.

Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the mainstays of the Dutton-Goldfield production. Using fruit from carefully chosen vineyards, Dan Goldfield produces wine that reflects the natural tendencies of the area: crisp, well-structured wines that display the complexity, balance and intensity that the partners believe are key to world-class wines.

Dutton-Goldfield Winery's first releases were a Dutton Ranch Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the 1998 vintage. Today Dan and Steve continue to produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Dutton Ranch plantings, numerous vineyard-designated wines, as well as small lots of old vine Zinfandel and hillside Syrah. The Dutton-Goldfield wines are crafted using traditional techniques such as barrel and malolactic fermentation for the Chardonnay, and open top fermentation for the Pinot Noir.

The winery is a partnership of friends, colleagues, neighbors and families. The wines reflect this spectacular part of Northern California where the grapes are grown, the superb quality of fruit from perfectly placed and planted vineyards, and the work of an appreciative winemaker.
