Absolutely delicious, fruit-forward Pinot Noir, one of three exceptional 2005's we've tried from Dutton-Goldfield. Ambrosial Pinot/cherry fruit and spicy rose-like floral scents cascade across the senses. Terrific depth without the remotest suggestion of heaviness. Velvet texture from start to finish, yet it's hard to believe a wine with this much length and balance wouldn't remain great for years to come. Not an inexpensive wine, but worth the price. - WB exec team 2008-02-08
