Chappellet Pinot Noir Dutton Ranch 2017

Last unit sold for $75.00

Product description

This rich and expressive Pinot Noir begins with aromas of currant, crème de cassis, and dark cherry, followed by subtle notes of anise, clove, mocha and rose petals. On the palate, silky tannins add length and polish to flavours of wild berry and pomegranate, with hints of white pepper and nutmeg providing nuance to the lingering finish.

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast    This vineyard-designate wine offers an inviting array of white pepper, cardamom and rose petal. Layered in complex, interwoven tannins and oak, it has tension and freshness in abundance, with deft flavors of stone, plum and dark cherry.

91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    Smoked earth, black cherries, Christmas spice, and a hint of potpourri and earth all emerge from the 2017 Pinot Noir Chappellet Grower Collection Dutton Ranch, and it's a more fleshy, rounded, upfront Pinot Noir compared to the Sonoma Coast and Petaluma release. Nevertheless, it still has good density, as well as ripe tannins, and is an outstanding wine.
