2006 Dutton-Goldfield Dutton Ranch Chardonnay

  • 2006 Dutton-Goldfield Chardonnay Dutton Ranch – USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (2/5/2013)
    (Special thanks to Wineismylife for showing me how to post this from Cellar Tracker!) I am a huge fan of Dan Goldfield ever since I met him at the International Pinot Noir Conference (IPNC) a few years ago. He is originally from the Philly area, and still has plenty of that Philly attitude. This Chard is outstanding, but a bit of Dan’s antithesis–it is reserved and refined, delicate and discriminating. Great fruit and acidity, all in balance. A hint of oak, but by no means is this a big, boisterous, Cali chard. One of the better Chards I have had in a while. Excellent. (91 points)

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    I love the idea of defining a wine in terms of an antithetical personality. This opens up a world of possibility!
