Winemaker Notes

The weather in 2014 was so perfect, even Dutton-Goldfield's usually fog-shrouded vineyard in Freestone saw plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures. Their cooler coastal sites love warm summers and temperate fall weather, and reward them with generous, rich, elegant fruit.

The red fruit notes carry the lead this year, with cranberry and red raspberry mingling with cardamom, nutmeg and bramble spice notes. There’s an enveloping quality to the aromas that promises the richness ahead. The first sip fulfills that with plush raspberry pie flavors, carried on firm medium-grained tannins. The berries are accented with thyme notes and dark, exotic sandalwood incense—the famous "Freestone spice"— before ending in an assertive and lingering finish that carries another promise, of a long and beautiful life ahead.

This is a great match for smoked duck or herb-roasted pheasant

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
From two blocks of a vineyard above Freestone that's strongly influenced by the ocean, this wine is marked by leathery pepper, baked cherry and an exotic mix of savory spice. Medium-bodied, it has a density that's both plush and lush.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
The Freestone Hill vineyard is one of the coolest in the Russian River Valley, just inside the Pacific-influenced southwest border of the appellation; Dan Goldfield has worked with the vineyard since 1999. In cool years it can be an edgy site, growing tense pinot noir with a pronounced conifer scent. This 2014 is perhaps not quite as deep or complex as some other vintages, but it’s a smooth and fresh red, with nooks of lifted floral tones hidden in its deep purple robe of fruit—sleek, ripe and delicious.

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.

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
