Russian River Valley is one of the United States’ most revered wine regions for Pinot Noir and is located in the heart of California’s Sonoma County. It’s cool and foggy, influenced by the Pacific Ocean and the oceanic breezes that rolls in through the Petaluma Gap. This climate is ideal for Pinot Noir, which thrives in these cooler environments that lead to long, slow ripening seasons. The result is wines with complexity and balance.
This Pinot Noir comes from one of Russian River Valley's top grape growers. It is made from berries hand-picked from vines scattered about the lush hills and cool valleys of the region. Grapes are fermented and aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels before bottling.
Alluringly scented with aromas of juicy black cherries and cocoa backed by lurking notes of cedar and violets. The wine's flavors are boldly expressive and distinctly stacked upon one another.
