Aromas of black plum, fresh raspberry, and forest floor are complemented by flavors of bing cherry and sassafras with hints of baking spice. On the palate, the 2017 vintage exudes rich concentration and integrated acidity.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley comes from 11 vineyards across the appellation. It aged 10 months in 35% new French oak. Medium ruby, it has a savory nose of smoked cranberries, crushed red and black cherries, pipe tobacco, forest floor and hints of orange peel and potpourri. Light to medium-bodied, it's silky and intense with a great interplay of ripe fruits, spices and earth notions. It has a frame of grainy tannins and juicy freshness to enliven the long finish. Well done! 9,000 cases produced.

Coming from a handful of sites in the Russian River and brought up in 34% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers textbook Russian River notes of mulled red and black fruits, spice box, cola, black tea, and autumn leaves. Rounded, medium-bodied, and supple on the palate, with beautiful fruit, drink it over the coming 4-5 years or so.

This robust wine has a sweet nose of red cherry, cola and vanilla oak, the texture thick and viscously opulent. Baking spice highlights the finish.
