Winemaker Notes

On the nose, aromas of red cherries, ripe raspberries, brambleberries and blueberries mingle with violets. Toasted brioche and sweet tea tease you to take a sip. Offering immediate palate appeal, the wine displays a beautiful balance of bright acidity and well-integrated tannins supported by a touch of warm French oak. Velvety and ripe with a lingering finish, all indications point to a long life ahead.

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
A hint of stemmy earthiness leads the way to a luxurious, expansive and velvety palate. The acidity is edgy and fresh, lifting the savory and floral components over a rich, complex berry core.
TP 94
Tasting Panel

Aged sur lie for nine months in 55% new French oak, this wine is a merriment of earthly delights. Just-picked strawberries in tilled soil, mocha-kissed cherries, cinnamon, and coriander are demonstrative on both the nose and palate. Basil and sage echo on the red-fruited finish.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is ripe with pure red cherry, cola spice, cedar, and forest floor. The palate is ripe with red plum skin, mineral-rich earth, light game, and dried red flowers, and there is a bit more structure to this red, with tannins that build.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby, the 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley opens with savory scents of cranberry sauce, rhubarb, cherries and violet perfume with earthy and meaty touches. The medium-bodied palate is lushly fruited with a grainy texture, juicy freshness and long, spicy finish.

While the Russian River Valley is a large appellation with multiple climate zones and soil types, it is best known for cool-climate varieties, with Pinot Noir as the most celebrated. The grapes benefit from a reliable late afternoon flow of Pacific Ocean fog through the Petaluma Gap and along the Russian River Valley that ensures slow and steady ripening and the preservation of grape acidity. Today many of California’s most highly regarded Pinot Noir vineyards are in the Russian River Valley, along with its sub-appellation, Green Valley.

Historically Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs had bright red fruit and delicate earthy, mineral notes. But changes in viticultural and winemaking practices have led to stylistic changes in some of the region’s wines. Adjustments to canopy management, among other techniques, have resulted in riper fruit and bolder wines as well. These show flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cola, spice and darker, loamy earth tones, accenting traditional Pinot Noir notes of strawberry, raspberry and light cherry.
