From the Winemaker:
The 2011 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of vineyards which lie in cool areas throughout the Russian River Valley. This is a complex region, which in turn allows this Pinot Noir to have many layers and complexities. The wine shows a range of bright red fruits to brambly voluptuous ﬂavors, all hallmark characteristics of the appellation. The individual lots are all unique, providing distinct aromas and ﬂavors, and giving the blend broad complexity. We recommend drinking this wine between 2015 and 2019.
This beautifully complex wine shows layered aromas of rich warm fennel and sage spices, mingled with the red and dark fresh fruit components of red raspberry, crushed ripe black cherries and hint of rose petal.
This Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is pure, balanced, lush and focused. Rich chocolate covered cherries come to the front, while fresh ripe raspberries, pomegranate and cola develop throughout the palate, all resting generously on the top of the tongue. The lingering ﬁnish wraps around your palate with focus and freshness.
