|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Our "Narrow Gauge" production of Pinot Noir is a blend of select vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. With access to several sites in the appellation, we felt compelled to create a wine that expresses the regional position in its entirety. A fuller and broader style of Pinot Noir, the nose opens with aromatic concentrations of sweet earth, rose water, black cherries, and allspice. The palate is exotic, expansive, yet focused with tongue- curling acidity and a savory glide that finishes with substantial length on the palate.
Medium ruby in the glass, the 2017 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge has a very spicy nose of cinnamon, peppercorn, dried leaves and potpourri with warm black cherries and berries and crushed red cherries. Medium-bodied and silky with loads of spices in the mouth, it has soft, grainy tannins and juicy acidity with a long, layered finish. 515 cases produced.
