A welcoming bouquet of vanilla-tinged black cherry and mulberry fruits with notes of herbs greet the nose in this 2019 Pinot Noir. Plum and blackberry flavors are balanced by nuances of chocolate, tea and spice. This is a medium-bodied wine with an outstanding and refreshing finish.
To create our 2019 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, grapes were predominantly hand-harvested from the certified Sonoma Sustainable BCD Vineyard, the sustainably farmed Heintz Vineyard and the Organic and Demeter Certified DeLoach Estate. Each of these Russian River Valley Vineyards contribute their unique complexities to the final blend
Heavy spring rains enriched the soils and delayed bud break by a few weeks. A heat spike in June, followed by warm weather, brought even veraison throughout the vineyards. A cooling trend and touch of rain in mid-September created ideal conditions for the 2019 harvest which is considered a near-perfect vintage.
Pairs well with beef, veal, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
