(From 2013 Vintage) This Pinot Noir has rich aromas of raspberry jam and brandy- macerated cherries. Its luxurious density and beautiful structure are hallmarks of the 2013 vintage. Round flavors and balanced tannins finsh with nuances of vanilla and star anise. Classic pairings like pan-seared duck breast with a cherry reduction work very well, along with many meaty or smoky dishes. Even baked fish topped with herbs and Provencal-inspired tomato and garlic sauce.
(From 2012 Vintage) Picket Fence Pinot Noir represents an exceptional value for the region. Russian River Pinot Noir is known for a darker fruit profile, and this wine stays true to varietal character, with spice and excellent structure adding to the complexity.
