Dutton Ranch is composed of 1,100 acres of premium Sonoma County vineyards planted on coveted Goldridge sandy loam soil. Fruit for this vintage was sourced from several locations within Dutton Ranch’s Russian River Valley vineyards. Plots in the warmer end of the valley contributed ripe tropical elements, while those from cooler areas lent minerality and a structural backbone.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of stone fruit, citrus, melon, toasted nuts, and vanilla bean. On the palate, the wine is rich and creamy with bright acidity and a long finish.
Ratings
90 Points by Wine Enthusiast-Tropical, thick and decidedly rich, this wine is both balanced and luxuriously fleshy, with highlights of peach, pineapple, Gravenstein apple and vanillakissed caramel. Full bodied, it’ll still sing at the table. — V.B.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and whole clusters were gently pressed into French oak barrels. The wine was barrel-fermented with native yeasts and underwent 100% native malolactic fermentation. It was aged surlie in barrel for 11 months with frequent battonage.
Winemaker Notes
The 2013 growing season was a near twin to the acclaimed 2012 vintage. Optimal conditions in spring and summer led to elongated hang time, resulting in enhanced flavors and acidity.
