Winemaking Notes

Aromas of bright black cherry and wild berry cobbler, fresh dark pomegranate complimented with subtle notes of moist forest floor. The mouthfeel is silky yet juicy, coating and refreshing. Raspberry and cherry juice turn into a long finish that trails off with hints of umami, mushrooms and brown spice.

“A fruit-forward pinot with lots of bright strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and layered with ripe, integrated tannins and lots of fruit at the finish. Just the right amount of bitterness at the end. Drink or hold.”

“Leading off the two Pinot Noirs, the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is an outstanding wine that reveals a vivid ruby color to go with textbook notes of framboise, candied violets, orange peel, and flowery incense. It’s medium-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a nice spine of acidity and a great finish. Drink this terrific Russian River Valley Pinot Noir over the coming 5-7 years.”

Wine Advocate

“Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley opens with a lovely floral perfume—lilacs and lavender—over notes of black raspberries, black cherries and mulberries plus a hint of stewed tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of plump, ripe, juicy fruit, supported by a lively line and fine-grained tannins, culminating in a perfumed finish”
