Pinot Noir from our Russian River Valley estate vineyard is one of our true winemaking joys. This vintage displays wonderful aromatics of cranberry, cherry compote and rose petals. Several more minutes of airing reveal earthy notes and baking spices. On the palate, flavors of black cherry, strawberry and rose hip come forward to integrate with hints of toast. The tannins are velvety and smooth with a round, creamy mouthfeel. This delicious Pinot Noir is balanced with nice acidity and a long, lingering finish.
