Let's get lost

Today’s Lost Canyon Winery 2013 Dutton Ranch Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a Super QPR stunner that will leave your senses - and your dinner guests - very well pleased. And impressed. And yearning for more, once that 90 point bottle has been completely quaffed.

Get yours… before we run out!

The Dutton Ranch Vineyards, where today’s wine was born, provides grapes to some of California’s top Pinot Noir producers, including Hartford Family, J Vineyards, Flowers, Domain Chandon, Merry Edwards, Ramey, Chappellet Winery, Coppola, Romililly, Robert Mondavi Winery and many others. The accolades are through the roof, and for good reason… Dutton’s grapes are some of the most sought after in the Russian River Valley.

Today’s wine delivers classic Russian River aromatics, with cherry cola, cherry bark, forest floor, Santa Rosa plum, cedar, soft spice and a hint of gunpowder.

Delicious and lively on the palate, with black cherry juice, marionberry, chocolate covered cherry, sweetwood, forest floor, dried mushroom, soft spice and subtle mocha.

We’ve been featuring the wines of Lost Canyon Winery, a sister label of Fritz Underground Winery, since 2008. As long as they continue to impress and delight us, we’ll keep bringing you their wonderful wines.

Today’s elegant Pinot is offered to you with our fullest recommendation.

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

90 points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, 9/1/2016 - “This is another impressive effort by the producer with this variety, sourced from consistently good farmers. It opens in minty sandalwood and a celebration of dried herb and forest. Fully formed without being full bodied or overly ripe, it’s instead fresh in orange and pomegranate with a lightness of texture and body.”

Tasting Profile

Look:

Delightfully pretty light ruby hues at the heart of the wine, with pale pink edges. Pencil tip tears run swiftly down the glass wall after a good swirl.

Smell:

Cherry cola, cherry bark, forest floor, Santa Rosa plum, cedar, soft spice and a hint of gunpowder.

Taste:

Black cherry juice, marionberry, chocolate covered cherry, sweetwood, forest floor, dried mushroom, soft spice and subtle mocha.

Finish:

On the palate, this wine is ultra pleasing, with a very soft, elegant entry, followed by fine tannins and a gradually spreading dryness that leaves the palate with a plush, slightly dry feeling.

Pairing:

We’ll be enjoying our bottles of this fantastic Pinot Noir with a big plate of fettucini with wild mushrooms, beef and sun-dried tomatoes in a creamy alfredo sauce.
