2012 Russian River Pinot Noir
Vineyard: Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is sourced from three premium vineyards that bring their unique character into this blend. From Freestone, Green Valley, and Olivet Lane, we source Clone 115 and Pommard Clone pinot noir. The cooler Freestone vineyard brings bright acidity and dark structure. The Green Valley site offers a rich and round mid-palate and the Olivet Lane vineyard offers ripe round forward fruit.
Tasting notes: Raspberry, strawberry jam and violets with sandalwood, clove and vanilla aromas. Bright round red fruit on the palate with soft juicy tannins.
Barrel: 18 months in French oak - 44% new
Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
