    Color: Medium ruby.
    Nose: The nose opens with autumnal whispers of truffle and forest floor, seamlessly interwoven with the warmth of cinnamon and the delicate astringency of Earl Grey tea leaves. This is underscored by a vivid heart of wild berry fruit that captures the essence of the coastal Green Valley terroir, with added hints of wild berries, thyme, spearmint, and a truffle-like umami.
    Flavor Profile: The palate is greeted by a dynamic interplay of dark fruit pastilles, cherry, licorice, and briary notes. Its vibrant character is accentuated by concentrated mineral-driven fruit and spicy undertones that stretch into a generous finish.
    Body of the Wine: The medium-bodied structure supports a supple and detailed expression of the vineyards, portraying a wine that is both concentrated and deep, yet retaining a bright and tightly knit composure.
    Tannin Structure: Silky in texture, the tannins are finely woven into the wine, providing a framework that is intricate and adds to the wine's elegant depth.
    Sweetness levels: Dry, with the natural sweetness of ripe berries highlighted by the plush and juicy nature of the wine's core.
    Acidity levels: Energetic acidity brings a lively and fresh dimension to the palate, contributing to the wine's drawn-out length and focus.

    Wine Advocate
    The 2021 Pinot Noir Ryan has a medium ruby color and autumnal scents of truffle and forest floor, cinnamon and Earl Grey tea leaves complementing a core of wild berry fruit. (In 2021, the wine comes from the Dutton-Jentoft and Widdoes vineyards rather than 100% from Jentoft as in previous vintages.) The medium-bodied palate is supple and detailed with a concentrated core of mineral-driven fruit. It has a silky texture, energetic acidity, and a long, layered finish. This is so delicious and very easy to drink!
    VIN 95
    The 2021 Pinot Noir Ryan is a wild, potent wine. Tasted from tank, the 2021 comes across as raw and not fully finished, which is not terribly surprising. Intensely savory and mineral, the 2021 is very tightly wound at this stage. Sweet floral, citrus and exotic spice notes emerge over time, but the 2021 is a mere infant.

    The Wine Independent
    The 2021 Pinot Noir Ryan is a blend of two Dutton Ranch Vineyards, 56% Widdoes and 44% Jentoft. No whole-cluster fermentation was used. Medium ruby-purple in color, it pops from the glass with evocative, classic scents of black cherries, boysenberries, and pomegranate with suggestions of red roses, forest floor, and cinnamon toast. The medium-bodied palate is seductively plush and juicy, laden with expressive red and black berry layers, finishing long and pure
