Just take a look at the incredible list of Dutton Ranch clients – Chappellet, Chasseur,  Kistler, Lewis, Duckhorn, Patz & Hall, DuMOL, Flowers, Hartford Court, Merry Edwards, Ramey, Sonoma Cutrer, Mondavi, on and on the list goes – it’s nuts! That’s because these impeccably farmed flavor grenades are absolutely essential to delivering a payload of explosive black and purple berry flavors that gives Pinot lovers the shivers. This is the key ingredient in the highest-scoring Russian River wines and Lost Canyon is serving it up to you at a very friendly case price.  Pour this for your Pinot-loving friends and watch them think you just uncorked some Merry Edwards or Kosta Browne just for them…

About the wine

Pinot Purists have officially added Lost Canyon to the top ranks. This slow-burning, terroir-focused label has carefully cherry-picked top Sonoma vineyards for its wines and continues to build momentum.  The best example of their arrival is their flamboyant Dutton Ranch bottling, which captures the cool-climate drama of the Russian River Valley in exacting detail.  The smell of coastal redwoods after a rain slithers through abundant notes of candied orange peel, white blossoms and ripe Bing cherry fruit. On the palate the wine is intense without being syrupy.  This diamond-bright Pinot provides red and black fruit jazz along with notions of mint chocolate, dusty earth, sassafras and black tea, while uncorking a heckuva finish that practically sizzles on the palate. It’s the signature taste of the exciting wine that makes Russian River peerless when it’s on its “A” game.  Lost Canyon captures the natural energy of the appellation and they don’t bother with anything short of the most distinctive Pinot flavors. Absolutely top notch stuff that is eerily reminiscent of fan favorites from Williams-Selyem and Flowers.

About the winery

Lost Canyon is one of Sonoma’s most ardent proponents of single vineyard wine. They’re downright maniacal about hyper-clean winemaking and exacting decisions in the vineyard and the barrel room. Yet what sets them apart from the pack is their strong aversion to blending. They are terroir hounds and they believe that Russian River will emerge as a competitor to Burgundy - with the added thump of great fruit to augment the single-vineyard specifics. Judging from their critical acclaim, they’re well on their way – having earned 92-95pts from Wine Enthusiast nine times!  Ironically, Lost Canyon can be found – at the Fritz Underground tasting room in Santa Rosa, where one can enjoy the no-fuss atmosphere and the high-quality wines.   

About the vineyard

The Dutton Family is perhaps the most recognized name in fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.  All combined, they hold over 1100 acres of the best land in California for Burgundy varieties and they are the Pinot and Chardonnay equivalent of the famed Beckstoffers.  If you’ve tasted and loved the quality found in bottles with the Beckstoffer name, then you know the difference good farming can make.  That’s why Dutton Ranch provides grapes to the country’s top producers, an honor roll which would take pages to fully list.  To mention but a few:  Kistler, Merry Edwards, Flowers, Patz & Hall, Ramey.  These wineries together count for several hundred scores of 90+ points.  It’s not overstatement to say that you are defined by the company you keep, and Dutton Ranch only rolls with the best.

About the winemaker, Brad Longton 

Brad Longton, winemaker, hails from Perth, Australia and brings experience from there (they grow pretty good Pinot down in Victoria!) as well as Northern California wineries. He has eight years of experience handcrafting, single-vineyard Lost Canyon, Fritz and Jenner Vineyards wines sourced from premier terroir of cooler appellations in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Los Carneros. Brad’s careful focus and premier viticulture practices create stunning individual wines.  

97-99 points - Walter Moore, WSET Diploma, CSW

“You'll be hard pressed to find a Russian River Pinot Noir for under $50 of this calibre from the great 2013 vintage. It's the best RRV Pinot Noir I've tasted in a long time. Period. There's nothing quite like Dutton Ranch when it comes to RRV Pinot Noir. The wine exudes gorgeous ripe aromatics of baked black cherries, vanilla sticks, licorice, orange zest, and bruised yellow peach - and more fruit. It's not a runaway fruit train style of Pinot Noir that exceeds 15% alc, but it doesn't skimp on bold, luscious, and exotic Pinot Noir character either. From the addictive nose, to the dense, rich palate that's full of all that we want from top-notch Pinot Noir, this Dutton Ranch juice is breathtaking. I tasted it twice, just to make sure!”

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
