The 2014 Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. With a soft and silky texture, on the palate cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity. Serving: Enjoy this Pinot Noir now with gruyere cheese and charcuterie, wild mushroom pizza or slow roasted pulled pork or cellar it for enjoyment for the next 2 to 4 years.

Bright in acidity and cradled moderate oak, this wine shows a crunchiness to the tannins and bright bursts of cranberry, pomegranate and orange peel flavors. Elements of baking spice dot the finish, contrasting well against the rich fruit.

Refined, featuring lithe flavors of cherry tart and raspberry, with hints of nutmeg, all supported by medium-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Chocolate, spice and cream details emerge on the rich finish. Drink now through 2024. 67,500 cases made.

The 2016 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard Russian River Valley is pale to medium ruby in the glass with a nose of Bing cherry, tart cranberry and pomegranate plus notes of woodsmoke, earth and dried leaves. Light to medium-bodied with a good core of tart red fruits, it has firm, slightly grippy tannins but good freshness on the finish. Good effort. 67,500 cases produced.
