Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, 2020

$ 52.00

While grown primarily in the sandy Goldridge soil, which tends to produce Pinot Noir with flavors of red fruits and orange peel, this wine also illustrates some of the deep, brooding black cherry character generally found in the region’s clay soils. It was bottled without fining or filtration, and should age gracefully for a handful of years.

Winemaker's Notes

While the 2020 Vintage on the West Coast had its challenges, primarily smoke exposure in certain sites, I am finding that the few, very carefully selected lots used for this bottling are not exhibiting issues from this and I’m quite confident to offer it on futures, just as I did with the 2020 Zinfandels.

Ginger, red beets, red and black cherry, tarragon, and a touch of damp loam on the nose. Juicy roasted beets and cherry pie on the mouth. Very nice continuity, focus and length with a quite mouth-watering finish. I’ve endeavored to maintain clarity and focus of this wine during blending trials and have learned a lot in the process.
