Aromatic cherry candy and blood orange fruits with savory bay laurel and tarragon herbs on the nose give way to richer, classic Russian River black cherry fruits on the palate with mouthwatering acidity and soft, velvet textured tannins on the palate.
Mid-December rain in 2014 was followed by a dry and warm January and February with temperatures in the 60s. The early warming of the soils in 2015 encouraged sap flow in the vines, leading to bud break the first week of March. Sporadic showers throughout late March and early April brought added moisture to the vines during the beginning of the growing season and provided excellent vegetative support during the period of rapid shoot development. Our Pinot Noir experienced an extended bloom lasting from mid-April through early May which led to decreased yields with well-spaced, smaller clusters — excellent from a quality standpoint. Moderate summer temperatures balanced by the presence of coastal fog brought the phenolic chemistry of the rosé fruit to optimal harvest levels during the first week of August.
Partnering with a small selection of family-farmed vineyards in the Russian River Valley as well as our Russian River home vineyard. Each partner vineyard is carefully chosen to be representative of the Russian River Valley’s distinct neighborhoods to create a balanced expression of Russian River Pinot Noir.
With budbreak in early March and unseasonably cool weather during flowering, the 2015 vintage began with loose clusters with small, intense berries. Summer brought ideal warm temperatures and dry conditions throughout the growing season which resulted in an early harvest in select vineyards. Pinot Noir from this vintage shows concentrated fruit expression, with intense aromas and flavors balanced by remarkable acidity. 100% native yeast, 15% whole cluster.
