2014 was another generous growing season in the Russian River Valley, with picture-perfect weather from spring through harvest. We brought in our blocks for the Dutton Ranch Chardonnay over the course of five weeks, from the warmer Morelli Lane site on August 28 to the extremely cool and low-lying Mill Station Vineyard on October 1. The vintage again gave us just what we want for this expression of the appellation: bright fruit, balance, and a solid backbone. The wine leads out with aromas of lemon oil, pear and apricot, with a touch of tropical mango and pineapple framing the edges. The mouth is beautifully fresh, with just the right amount of creaminess. A citrus medley of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, and a bit of lime zest is underlain with luscious ginger crème caramel notes. The finish is lively, with a kiss of toffee at the end balancing out the juicy Green Valley acidity. The pairing options are expansive and diverse, from crab salad to honey baked ham to a sharp Pecorino.
Wine EnthusiastCrafted from six vineyards within the Dutton family's holdings, this is a pretty wine, smooth and supple with a balance of acidity and light body. Citrus and apple vie for attention with a slight tropical note and expansiveness of ginger cookie and toffee.
Wine SpectatorMarked by a raw, woody texture, yet the core is rich and full-bodied, with hints of tangerine, nectarine, vanilla and coconut. Needs times, as the finish is more revealing. Drink now. 4,018 cases made.
