Winemaker Notes

Another dry winter and continued drought conditions led to an early harvest and intense phenolic development. The deep ruby color excites while the dark cherry and blueberry aromas allure. Digging deeper, tantalizing aromas of toffee and butterscotch from the oak aging are exposed. On the palate, the entry is rich and firm, followed by sweet blueberry compote and mouth coating soft tannins. Continually balanced throughout on its characteristic acid backbone, this wine finishes with rich blueberry and spice, leaving you ready to line up for the ride all over again. Ready to drink now for the fruit-forward-enthusiast, this wine will also continue to gain complexity over the next 10 years.

Fox Den is perched on top of StoetzRidge, at the western border of Green Valley and just above the town of Occidental. The Gold Ridge soil here is extremely sandy since this ridge is old pushed-up sea bottom, making for low vigor vines, slow ripening, and beautifully floral and fruit-driven wine. Here on the hill, it’s frequently a touch warmer than at the bottom of the valley, but it’s still always among the last harvested and highest in natural acidity of our Pinots. Dan and Steve planted the spot together in 2002, and Dan has been crafting the wine since 2004.

From a site above the town of Occidental, this is a beauty of a wine that's high in natural acidity and delicately layered with soft, velvety waves of texture. Raspberry, cherry and allspice flavors commingle, while a tease of blueberry comes into focus. Editors’ Choice

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Fox Den Vineyard Dutton Ranch delivers red currants, pomegranate and rhubarb on the nose, with suggestions of wild thyme and tilled earth. Elegantly fruited and charged with wonderful energy, the medium-bodied palate offers finely grained tannins and plenty of freshness on the long finish.

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.
