Tasting Notes

Our Pinot Noir exhibits fine texture and elegance, with tart cherry, rhubarb pie, allspice, and a hint of toasty oak flavors. A perfect balance of fruit, oak, and acid. It is a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with a fruit-forward profile.

The Russian River Valley extends just south of the town of Healdsburg to the San Pablo Bay in the west. It has the coolest climate of all the regions in Sonoma because of the fog traveling up the Russian River from the ocean. The climate makes the Russian River Valley prime Chardonnay and Pinot Noir country. Both grape varieties thrive here with a lush, rich intensity of fruit flavors rarely found in other places. The cooler climate creates the ideal conditions to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with more intense forward fruit, lovely crispness and acidity with great balance and length. This Russian River Valley appellation is truly one of the shining stars of Sonoma.
