Our Wines


 

Karmen Isabella attracts the eye with reflective garnet and brilliant purple hues. The nose is full of fresh crushed red and black berry fruits, light oak with earthy-dusty-clay nuances. On the palate the wine has a juicy, supple, mouth filling texture. Flavors of crisp, ripe black cherry/berry fruit abound with charming rose and persimmon notes. Dark fruits permeate the finish with subtle integrated oak. The Karmen Isabella is ready to drink now and is very approachable with fresh strawberry and cherry cola aromas. A fruit forward Pinot Noir consistent with what we look forward to in this cuvee every vintage!

The Manzana Vineyard always brings us an expressive sark fruit that tantalizes our taste buds and often is a key component of the Karmen Isabella Pinot Noir blend. The consistent, deep crimson color provides the prelude to the bright fruit aromas that taste and unfold in this wine. Complex layers mid-palate of forest floor, pine needles, and subtle tannins. There’s also a sweet, light tobacco melded with French vanilla from the varying degrees of toastiness in the oak barrels that harmonize into a well-structured, almost chewy, body. Manzana represents classic cool climate pinot Noir: it can be served now or cellared for five to eight years.

Lucky for us, behind every amazing vineyard that we farm comes an equally deep story from our multi-generational family history.  The La Familia Pinot Noir is no exception.  It is about neighbors and friends.  Families and farming.  Treating people with respect and tending to Mother Nature.  His committment over time has rewarded us with a wine that is focused and pristine.  The Pommard clone on this vineyard lends many dark fruit qualities ot the wine.  This clone consistently produces small berries and clusters with concentrated fruit flavors.

This svelte and complex wine is defined as the “Big Brother” of our Pinot Noirs. Coming from a winery with a “Sisters’ Collection” of wines that says a lot! It definitely holds its own and lets its distinctive voice be heard…and tasted. Tracy Dutton has consistently noted the particular aromas, of the red cherries from this distinctive vineyard.

The wine certainly lives up to the Berry Block name. Tons of fruit leap from the glass in the wine. Fresh Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry and Boysenberry explode and make this wine one of a kind. Undertones of cherry pipe tobacco and soft leather help give the wine the layers of flavors needed in the special clone selection. The flavor on the pallet are rich and vibrant as well. Smooth supple tannins add to and the depth and the long finish of the wine. Berry Block is truly one of a kind and does not disappoint.

Jewell Block has always been a fan favorite and a crowd pleaser. Staying true to the legacy of this vineyard and wine that I never want to stray too far from what Terry Adams created. The only real change to this wine, besides what mother nature gives us, was the yeast selec­tion for this vintage. Jewell Block is always one of our last picks and is always a stubborn ferment. This year I changed from our typical yeast strain to a slow and steady yeast know to be a great ‘closer’. I happy to report the trial worked and we are very pleased with the results. We know you will be too!

Named in honor of Tracy Dutton’s father, the vineyard was planted in 2002 with the Syrah Noir Clone in the Santa Rosa Plains in Huichica Loam soil. This vineyard, one of the more than 80 that Dutton Ranch farms, is located in a low-lying elevation site with rolling hills and is the home of Tracy’s parents, Paul and Carol. Because of the topography, it is one of the last vineyard sites to burn off morning fog and receive sun.  A rich palate, a long finish and sweet oak flavors which give a great balance to the acid in this Syrah.

We love cool-climate Syrahs and this 2016 is no exception. It beguiles, tempts, and delivers! Deep rich violet color with bight brilliant purple edges that is reminiscent of black berry juice. Aromas of ripe plum, black cherry, and a dusting of coco powder, clove and cinnamon with ethereal vanilla notes fill the nose. This is a fleshy, juicy and fruit forward wine. The aromas follow to the pallet with additions of black cherry, blueberry and white pepper. Lush black cherry and pepper persist in the long finish. This approachable wine is a hedonistic mouthful! Rich, velvety tannins make this is a full-bodied Syrah that can be enjoyed for the next 3-5 years, or it can be enjoyed now with a plate of barbequed ribs or smoked pork with all of the summer side dishes.

A perfect balance of all things we do well here at Dutton Estate Winery,  grape growing and winemaking. With fruit being sourced from all of Dutton Ranch's finest Chardonnay Vineyards we fermented equal parts in our concrete Eggs, stainless steel and French oak. Pale straw and light golden in color, the nose opens up with super expressive Chardonnay aromas of apricot, white peach, lemon, vanilla and hints of little cuties. French oak frames the flavors without being the center of attention. The aromas follow through to the palate, with rich dried apricot surrounded by pear and lemon zest.

Aromas of fragrant pears, ripe Golden Delicious apples, with subtle melon and quince, light­ly toasted bread and hints of French oak fill the nose. Dynamic fruit fills the mouth; there is a Granny Smith like structure with crunchy pear fruit and a mineral edge. Crisp, zingy apple flavors permeate the finish with a lingering pear, lime like citrus spice and a touch of Jolly Roger notes that glow. An intriguing wine that beckons for another glass to discover all of the details.
