2018 Russian River Valley ~ Pinot Noir ~ 750 ml

Tasting Notes

Vibrant aromas fill the nose with cherry and rhubarb merged with hints of crushed rock minerality and earth. The mouth offers generous flavors of sweet and sour cherry, rhubarb, plum and raspberry. Mid-palate, subtle spicy oak and tea join in, adding complexity and depth. The solid structure stays in the background, never interfering with the plush flavors. Enjoy with wild king salmon cakes, or pork tenderloin with roasted cherries and shallots.

Winemaker Notes

Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend from carefully selected vineyards from this appellation. We include these vineyards— Leras Family, Nunes, Bucher, and Vin Noy as well as others that we may want to try. We add new vineyards to this blend to see if they’ll fit our flavor profile and become a vineyard designate in future vintages. Each vineyard holds its own distinction; and we feel that the fruit is among the best the Russian River Valley has to offer.
