Rich cola and an abundance of pomegranate, cherry and plum exude from the glass immediately after opening, releasing to secondary notes of baking spice and nice floral aromas. With a rich creamy mouth feel, this wine expands quickly on the palate yet maintains a fresh acidity in the finish. Subtle oak will intergrate over time leaving the best years of this wines life ahead of us.
Buried deep in a cooler sub-ava of Russian River called Green Valley, the Dutton Ranch ‘Widdoes Vineyard’ receives an extended hang-time before picking. While still picked at optimal ripeness the extended hang-time allows for exceptional complexity and adds to the wines age-worthiness.
