Winemaker Notes

Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir exudes flavors of fig, plum and lush cherry. Sweet earthy elements are followed by notes of tea and toast.

Critical Acclaim

JS 88
James Suckling

Nose of deep plum and blueberry. A very nice medium-bodied wine. Has cherry on the front, some currant in the middle, and a polished finish of light cherry.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

View More

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
