2019 Dutton-Goldfield Fox Den Pinot Noir
Fox Den Vineyard is situated in Green Valley, better known as the sweet spot of Russian River Valley. The vineyard is planted in sandy loam Goldridge soils. This compact, brooding wine has everything you want in a Pinot Noir. It is packed with a generous helping of brown and baking spices, layered with exotic black fruits and offers up some savory notes and minerality. While everything is in balance, it retains a serious personality that you will immediately embrace and revisit over and over again.
