Winemaking

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Fermentation: Tank fermented with native yeast and 25% whole cluster. Native malolactic fermentation in barrel
Aging: As traditionally practiced in Burgundy, we use an anaerobic approach with our Pinot Noir to preserve freshness. It was aged sur lies with monthly bâtonnage and spent 18 months in 45% new French barrels (François Frères and Taransaud). The wine was then lightly fined with egg white and bottled without filtration.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has savory scents of mushrooms, tobacco leaves and underbrush complementing a core of cranberry and red cherry fruit. The medium-bodied palate is chalky and refreshing with generous, earth-laced fruit and a long, flavorful finish. This is very easy to drink! 2023 - 2033." - Erin Brooks (Jun 2023)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"An earthy, reduced aroma blows off with time and uncovers good, ripe black-cherry and blackberry flavors in this hearty, textural wine. Firming tannins and tangy acidity add a mouth-watering aspect and bring out delicious depth and concentration with repeated sipping." - JG (Jul 2023)

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley pours a ripe transparent ruby, with spicy aromas of cinnamon, ripe cherry, pressed roses, and fresh earth. Medium to full-bodied, it has good freshness and a spicy character on the palate, with ripe cherry and wild raspberry, and offers refined tannins, fresh acidity, and good structure. Drink it over the next 6-8 years." (Jul 2023)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:

"Shows bramble-laced kirsch and plum notes that have good energy, with a kick of singed spices and incense adding range and energy to the finish. Drink now through 2027. 612 cases made." - JM (Sep 2023)
