“Lifted, exotic, perfumed Pinot Noir”

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.

The 2019 Amici Pinot Noir Reserve is a wine that exemplifies the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir style with concentrated wild black cherry, ripe pluot, and hints of rose. This medium- to full-bodied wine has flavors of powdered cocoa and blackberry with hints of soy on its elongated, velvety finish.

“Black cherries, mulberries, violets, and Provençal herb notes (rosemary, thyme) all emerge from the 2019 Pinot Noir Reserve, which is a mix of clones and from vineyards on Olivet Lane and the hillsides above Starr Road. This lifted, exotic, perfumed Pinot Noir is medium to full-bodied, has good acidity, and rock-solid overall balance. There are 3,900 bottles, and it’s going to cruise for 5-7 years if stored correctly.”
