Tasting Notes

The ultimate expression of our Russian River terroir, our 2016 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with aromas of raspberry and candied orange peel with hints of anise. 


Luscious flavors of strawberry, Santa Rosa plum and ripe cherry are balanced with an earthy note of black tea and hint of baking spice. Full and spreading across the palate, this wine offers a velvety mouthfeel and extremely long finish.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2016 vintage in Sonoma County was almost perfect with moderate late winter rains, providing a healthy boost to the drought-stricken region. Moderate spring and summer weather led to elegant, profound wines with tremendous amounts of expression even at an early age.
