2019 Signature Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

Signature Pinot Noir is a vineyard-driven wine sourced since 2003 from a small, unique parcel in one of the most cherished micro-regions in the Russian River Valley. Ideally suited for Pinot Noir, the predominant soil type is Goldridge, derived from an ancient inland sea that slowly emptied into the Pacific Ocean. Its excellent drainage and low soil fertility allow us to create a balanced vineyard ecosystem yielding exceptional, high-quality fruit without irrigation. The vineyard’s gently sloping southeastern exposure combined with 35+ year vine age yield poised, complex and age-worthy wines.

Tasting notes

2019 Signature Pinot Noir reveals a plush and overall seamless wine experience.

Opening with delicate botanical scents of lilac, violet, and dried orange peel, the wine exhibits an elegant and velvety mouthfeel. Vibrant flavors of Bing cherry and tangy plum are punctuated by warm baking spices and framed by seamless tannins and integrated, savory notes of wild thyme, pipe tobacco, and hints of peppered bacon.
