2014 Russian River Valley 'Estate Vineyard' Pinot Noir

94 Points, Gold Medal - 2016 World Wine Championships
Gold Medal - 2016 Sonoma County Harvest Fair Wine Competition

Aroma: Red plum and floral notes
Palate: Sweet cherry and cedar
Finish: Mouth-watering red fruit with soft fine tannin

Winemaker Comments:
This is a very attractive and easy drinking Pinot. It’s full-bodied but not too rich. Raising your glass, you’ll notice aromas of bright fruit and floral notes. Your palate is rewarded with sweet cherry and a hint of cedar while lovely tannins linger on the finish.

Pinot Noir:
The name is derived from the French words for ‘pine’ and ‘black’ alluding to the varietals' tightly clustered dark purple pine cone shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot Noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. By volume most Pinot Noir in America is grown in California with Oregon coming in second. Other regions are Washington State and New York. During 2004 and the beginning of 2005, Pinot Noir became considerably more popular amongst consumers in the United States, possibly because of the movie Sideways. Being lighter in style, it has benefited from a trend toward more restrained, less alcoholic wines. It is the delicate, subtle, complex and elegant nature of this wine that encourages growers and winemakers to cultivate this difficult grape. Robert Parker has described Pinot Noir: "When it's great, Pinot Noir produces the most complex, hedonistic, and remarkably thrilling red wine in the world."
