Bright and boisterous with cherries and berries on the nose, the 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is harmonized by meaty, brambly tones, and light accents of tobacco, clover, turmeric, and lavender. Upon first sip, fresh cranberries glow, reinforced by sage, charred rosemary, and hints of cashew. The wine's soft but firm tannins provide for a bright yet long resonating finish. Drink within 3 to 5 years.

The 2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, with its abundance light cherry and rose pedals sustained by notes of tobacco and pine in the nose, walks a fine line between the delicate and the rich and dense. On the tongue, ripe cherry, plum, and toasted almonds fill the cheeks while roasted wild mushrooms flesh out the palate.
