La Rochelle Winery | Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
100% Pinot Noir
While the Dutton Ranch is planted to several clones of Pinot, we used the Dijon 115 clone exclusively for this vintage. Displaying appellation-specific notes of rose hips, ripe red and black cherry, toasty oak, and subtle soy, this wine combines intense flavors with mid-palate creaminess, and significant acidity and tannin on the extremely lengthy finish. This wine will be well served with 2 years of additional bottle age and should evolve wonderfully for the next 7-10 years.
