2012 Dutton Goldfield "Angel Camp Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1204575 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Cellar Selection* A purely delicious fruit personality makes this single-vineyard Pinot stand out from the crowd of oak bombs. It has an unusually deep, dark color for a Pinot Noir and it stays a rich red on the rim. It’s medium to full-bodied but not at all heavy. A vein of tannin and berrylike acidity lifts the rich, ripe plum and black cherry flavors on the palate and through the finish.  (10/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good bright, dark red. Dark cherry, blueberry, black raspberry, tobacco and exotic spices on the nose, lifted by orange zest and flowers. Intensely flavored and vibrant, with terrific mineral energy and a positive herbal element to the savory black fruit and coffee bean flavors. Quite tightly coiled and firmly tannic today in comparison to the 2012s from Russian River Valley. But this tactile, serious Pinot has the mid-palate concentration to gain in bottle.  (5/2014)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 This smells ripe yet earthy, lifted by a scent of red cherries and a touch of volatility. While there’s not enough acidity here to make it feel electric, it sits rather beautifully on the palate, radiating flavors of blueberry and spice, delivering wholesome richness without excess weight; hard to resist.  (6/2014)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A fresh and notably ripe nose features a broad array of seductive spice notes on the black fruit and sandalwood suffused nose. The lush, round and velvety medium weight flavors coat the palate on the textured, delicious and moderately firm finish that delivers fine length. This robust effort isn't as refined as most D-G offerings but it certainly doesn't lack for character.  (10/2014)

Wine Spectator

 Aromas of pepper, spice and dark berry are pure and elegant, with a supple, graceful texture that firms on the finish.  (3/2014)
