Sub Region Sonoma
Country United States
library code: 50537
From the Critics:
- "Last year, we recommended the 2006 vintage of this wine with a similar score (95 points). It grows on a coastal ridge near Fort Ross, just north of Hirsch Vineyards, where Warren Dutton helped the McDougall family plant nine acres of pinot noir in 1998. At altitudes around 1,000 feet, the vines rise above the fogline, their fruit ripening to a sweet earthiness. The 2007 is a bold and demanding wine, firm, spicy and a little blunt when first poured. Over the course of several days, the wine's complexity and varietal integrity emerges, with an emphasis on earthy and expressive tannin rather than simple fruit. It has drive and tension, wrapped in potential energy for now, built for ten years or more in the cellar." -
