(From 2012 Vintage) Bright nose of cherry and plum lead the way to soft leather, cocoa and spice aromas. Toasty vanilla oak rounds out the bouquet. Cherry and plum fruit flavors offer a balanced and elegant finish. This very approachable wine offers soft tannins and gentle oak midpalate, with an earthy lingering finish.
Wine & SpiritsA classically-styled (i.e. French) Pinot from the Russian River Valley, the River Road is full of earthy, mushroomy notes on the nose and palate. Delightful strawberry and cherry fruit peek out from behind the loam and spice, with perfectly balanced acidity for structure. Pairs seamlessly with any roasted meat dish, mushroom risotto or grilled vegetarian meals.
