2013 Signature Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

The Signature Pinot Noir is a vineyard-driven wine made unique by its soil. Grown from a small four-acre Russian River Valley parcel that we’ve had the privilege of sourcing since 2003, its Goldridge soil is ideally suited for Pinot Noir - its depth and composition yields high quality fruit without irrigation, allowing us to dry farm the site. The vineyard’s gently sloping southeastern exposure combined with the 35+ year vine age yield poised, complex and age-worthy Pinot Noir.

Tasting notes

Opened by an expressive bouquet of florals and baking spice, 2013 Signature Pinot Noir reveals classic varietal characteristics of lively red fruits; red raspberry and tart cherry enhanced by cinnamon spice, black tea and vanilla.

35+ year vine maturity lend complexity and depth of flavor on the palate; tangy quince, strawberry jam, savory herbs and minerality abound on its graceful, well-defined frame. Inclusion of whole clusters in the fermentation enhances aromatics, structure and aging potential, while fine tea-like tannins and bright acidity accentuate its long and lasting finish.
