Its succulent fruit explodes in the mouth with cherry liquor, juicy pomegranate, and fig preserves, accented by allspice, cola and caramel. The wine’s graceful acidity is balanced by its smooth and creamy texture and a lingering velvety finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir expresses sweet aroma, full of ripe cherry and boysenberry layered with rich leathery, meaty undertones; highlighted by essences of violet, lavender, pine needle, and caramelized sugar. Deep cedar resonates on the palate, setting the stage for radiant cherry, raspberry, and pomegranate flavors. The fine tannin structure accompanies rich notes of garam masala, toasted almond, walnut, and dried orange peel, which elegantly complement this wine’s creamy texture and long-lasting finish.
Winemaker Notes
A deepening drought and exceptionally cool spring led to lower than average crop yields in 2015. Once summer kicked in however, ripening sped along quickly and fruit flew off the vine and into the winery at record pace. Resulting in much smaller cluster and individual berry size, and therefore a preferential skin to juice ratio, the 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is imparted with immense density and depth.
