The Wine

Lucky for us, behind every amazing vineyard that we farm comes and 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 commitment over time has rewarded us with a wine that is focused and pristine. The Pommard clone on this vineyard lends many dark fruit qualities to the wine. This clone consistently produces small berries and clusters with concentrated fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes

Transparent, brilliant red in the glass the nose is redolent of fragrant red raspberry and cherry fruit which gives way to spiced black cherry. Expansive, fresh crushed red fruit which gives way to spiced black cherry. Expansive, fresh crushed red fruits fill the mouth. It has a laser like focus on pure red cherry and Bing Cherry fruit with light green tea and hints of holiday spices. This sleek, well-structured wine has ample juicy acidity resulting in a dynamic texture on the palate. Aromatic, herb spiced cherry, red berry fruits glow on the lengthy, silky textured finish. La Familia will please Pinot lovers whether they open the wine now or have the to open the wine in the years to come.

The Vineyard

Dutton Ranch farms more than 80 separate vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Kozlowski Family Vineyard is located in the heart of the Green Valley, one of the coolest regions. It is also the vineyard home of Tracy Dutton’s family who have a rich history as farmers and growers in Sonoma County for five generations. The vineyard was planted a Pommard, Swan and Dijon 115 clones in 1988. In the Goldridge soil that historically produce wines of consistent character. We hope you enjoy this vineyard’s fruit as much as we love transforming it into wine.
