2017
Russian River

Pinot Noir
Description

The cool, foggy Russian River Valley climate allows for slow ripening and enables our grapes to develop full flavor maturation over an extended time. To create our 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, grapes were predominantly hand-harvested from the BCD Vineyard, the Heintz Vineyard and the Murray Vineyard. Each of these Russian River Valley Vineyards contributes their unique complexities to the final blend.

 On the palate, flavors of ripe cherry and raspberry are complimented by a hint of spice. This wine has a medium body and moderate tannins with well balance acidity and structure.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Crafted using traditional Burgundian techniques, the grapes were hand-sorted then fermented in small vats with all punch-downs done by hand. We aged the wine for 12 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, 20% new oak, to create a complex, multi-layered Pinot Noir.
