Winemakers Notes

Deep garnet color sets the expectation of the complexity and richness you are about to experience in this Russian River Valley classic. Take a deep breath and your nose fills with its dark earthiness. Hints of spice, roast coffee and dark chocolate are balanced with red and black fruits of cranberry, blackberry and cassis aromas. Plushily structured, this is a Pinot Noir that is long on texture with a backbone of youthful tannins. Bold, deep flavors full of spice, forest floor and dark chocolate lead to a long, elegant finish. This wine is ready to enjoy now or can be cellared for an additional 2-4 years.

Appellation

Russian River Valley

The Russian River Valley is one of the pinnacle areas for Pinot Noirs, known for making rich and flavorful, world-class Pinot Noir.

Why is this? One of the many reasons is the fog. Every day the fog is drawn in from the Pacific Ocean and can decrease the air temperature by as much as 40 degrees. This creates a cooler growing temperature that high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes require and gives the wines a touch more natural acidity for balance and complexity. Try Sonoma-Cutrer’s Russian River Valley Pinot Noir that exemplifies the exceptional quality of fruit grown in the Russian River Valley.
