Fox Den Vineyard, Russian River Valley AVA

Cases Produced

Planted by owners Steve Dutton and Dan Goldfield in 2002, Fox Den Vineyard is perched on top of Stoetz Ridge, at the western border of Green Valley and just above the town of Occidental in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. This beautiful site yields exceptional Pinot Noir fruit, which Dutton-Goldfield has been lovingly crafting into wine since 2004. The 2016 Fox Den Vineyard Pinot Noir captures that perfect combination of brightness and richness and it is especially vibrant in both the aromas and flavors. On the nose, vivid notes of cherry, strawberry and raspberry complement the luscious palate with flavors of Bing cherry, baking spice and Chambord. The texture is caressing and smooth with fine tannins that carry the creamy strawberry shortcake finish to a delicious end.
