Winemaking Notes

Made from grapes of premier vineyards in Russian River Valley, the Amici Cellars Reserve Pinot Noir showcases the classic Russian River characteristics of heady aromas, vibrant cherry fruit flavors and delicate tannins. A true beauty of a wine, it is delicious on release but will age well for 5-7 years.

A wine that exemplifies the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir style with black cherry, pomegranate, rhubarb and cranberry notes with hints of leather. Flavors of black tea and cinnamon add complexity through the palate, where a dense, velvety texture is balanced nicely with crisp fruit-driven freshness.

“Aged 11 months in 40% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Reserve (already bottled) is medium to deep ruby-purple colored, with redcurrants, cranberry jelly, pomegranate and black raspberries notes with touches of cardamom and menthol plus a waft of forest floor. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with a firm, tight-knit frame of fine-grained tannins, finishing long and refreshing.”
