This Pinot Noir offers aromas of jammy boysenberry and raspberry, black walnut, nutmeg and hints of forest floor. Moderate tannins greet you up front, followed by a juicy texture in the mid-palate. Pleasant warm and toasty oak flavors compliment flavors of sweet spice, pomegranate and cranberry that carry through to the long finish.

A slightly bigger wine than the Sonoma Coast, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers tons of rich black fruits, cola, and smoked earth characteristics in its medium to full-bodied, rounded, textured profile. Coming from a mix of sites, mostly destemmed (there are 15% whole clusters), and brought up in 17% new French oak, it’s a rocking little wine that delivers loads of pleasure.

Juicy black and red fruit highlight a weighty, full-bodied and fruit-forward style of powerful flavor in this well-made appellation wine. Baking spice and cola round out the profile.
