2009 Darioush Signature Pinot Noir * Russian River Valley

Signature Pinot Noir is grown in Russian River along the highly acclaimed ‘Gold Ridge’ soil series on Vine Hill Road. We are fond of this locale as it yields wines with the keenly defined structure and multi-layered flavor truly representative of the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation. Equally old-world in tradition, a large portion of the berries are whole cluster fermented in open top tanks to encourage fruit complexity and spice-oriented aromatics.

Tasting Notes:

Blessed with fragrant aromas of rose petal, cinnamon and lavender, 2009 Signature Pinot Noir shows a dynamic range continuing with bright strawberry, rhubarb and sweet blueberry flavors. Rather firm and statuesque in comparison to previous vintages, the wines concentration and ripe tannins suggest longevity, while subtle earthy undertones of tobacco, wet stone and incense come through in the prolonged finish.
