Pinot Noir



Winemaker's Notes

The nose is redolent of blackberries, plums, toffee, and crème brûlée. The rich and full tannins accentuate blackberry and dark plummy fruit flavors, and complement the creamy, silky finish. The concentrated dark fruits and spicy flavors truly express the classic depth, complexity, and finesse that you would expect from our Russian River Valley pinot noir.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2007 Vintage) Young and just a touch plummy in its otherwise red cherry first aromas, the wine exhibits a brushy, twiggy overlay as well in the nose. It is fairly full bodied and comes with a supple, somewhat rounded mouthfeel, and that softer edge brings a certain open accessibility to the well-crafted flavors. Enjoyable now, this one does not ask for further aging.
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2006 Vintage) Sporting the red cherry fruit one looks for in Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs, this pleasing expression of grape and place comes with a veneer of enriching oak that lifts its aromas nicely and fills out its tasty, youthfully energetic flavors. Full in body at entry and somewhat supple across the palate, this wine delivers its fully fruited flavors with an added fillip of a stony, minerally underpinning. Look for it to age for several years and to be a fine mate to game birds and veal chops.
