Winemaker Notes

The nose is a melange of cranberry, raspberry, Bing cherry, sarsaparilla and granite-like minerality; and the longer it opens up in the glass, the darker and more complex it gets. On the palate it offers wonderfully juicy red berry/cherry fruit with a touch of ginger and kola nut, and lots of mineral overtones. Like Mac himself, it's solid around the edges, but sweet, fine and giving in the middle. The finish is juicy and fresh, with just enough grip to cleanse the palate and foretell a long future for this luscious offering.

Situated high above the Gualala River and the Pacific Coast, McDougall Vineyard was added to our portfolio in 2001. At the north end of the Sonoma Coast, just north of Hirsch and Flowers vineyards, it has the perfect southern exposure high on the hillside. Farmed by long-time Dutton friends (the late) Mac, Barbara and Rich McDougall, this vineyard's combination of high elevation and proximity to the coast produces fruit with inimitable personality (like Mac), intense black cherry fruit, mineral overtones and a firm tannin backbone.

Wine Enthusiast
Overlooking the Gualala River and Pacific Ocean, the McDougall Vineyard reaches elevations of 1,100 feet, a perfect vantage point from which to breathe in fresh, cooling coastal air. The resulting wine is awash in bright, vibrant acidity, yet offers equal measures of juicy black cherry fruit and dried herb spice.

Dutton-Goldfield The View from Freestone Winery Image
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.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.
