WE94 – 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.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Dutton Ranch is another very pretty and nuanced wine in this range. Sweet floral notes and silky tannins accent a core of ripe Pinot fruit. Soft and inviting, with impeccable balance, the 2017 is gorgeous today. Drink it over the next decade or so.
JD91 – 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.
