2010 Darioush Signature Pinot Noir * Russian River Valley

Now in our sixth vintage, 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:

A broad range of dense, saturated aromas and flavors can be found in our classically proportioned 2010 Signature Pinot Noir, with dark cherry, rhubarb, and wild blueberry framed by crushed flowers, baking spices and applewood smoked bacon aromas. This vintage has a beautiful tactile quality on the palate, revealing a stony, earth-tinged structure that coats the mouth in a strong, persistent finish.
