All vineyards and clones are fermented and barrel-aged separately to put together the best possible composite blend based on our production for the vintage. The variety of locations, clone selection, soil composition, and microclimates all attribute to a well-rounded reflection of Russian River Pinot Noir.
The 2018 Russian River blend is bright, generous, and filled to the brim with fruity flavors. Layers of rustic spice and a hint of hickory on the finish. A well-balanced wine with plenty of complexity. Bright acidity and a limited amount of oak allow the pure fruit flavors to shine. The nose brings out dried rose petals, lavender, wild berries, pepper, and cardamom. On the palate, you will be enticed by concentrated black fruits, dark cherry, ripe blackberry, black raspberry, pomegranate tea, and savory spice that leads to a long, dry finish with a rustic twist. This wine will absolutely age well and is recommended to go with fresh pasta, salmon, chicken or poultry, or anything that comes off the grill. Enjoy.
