Aromas of black cherry, WILD BLUEBERRY, and allspice are followed by flavors of RED PLUM, boysenberry, and sassafras. On the palate, the 2017 vintage presents JUICY ACIDITY and soft tannins. Your go to options for this wine would be roasted mushrooms, aged gouda or grilled salmon. If you're feeling adventurous or inspired, an eggplant moussaka, five-spice chicken, or grilled portobello bacon burgers would be magnificent.

Tangy in strawberry and dark cherry, this impressively full-bodied, richly constructed wine is expansive and elegant. Tremendous structure upholds its core of tannin and oak, finishing with a tangy, high-acid crispness and length.

Another Russian River release, the 2017 Pinot Noir Fogveil comes from three estate vineyards: Barbieri, Olivet, and Piner. Aged 14 months in 37% new French oak, it gives up medium to full-bodied notes of baking spices, mulled raspberries, black cherries, candied flowers, and toasty oak. This rich, nicely concentrated 2017 has a great mid-palate as well as texture and is another beautiful wine in the lineup.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Fog Veil aged 15 months in 37% new French oak. It's pale to medium ruby, opening to red licorice, saline, rhubarb and pomegranate with accents of tangerine, red plum, roasted sage, blueberries and a spicy undercurrent. Light to medium-bodied, it's delicate but with loads of flavor layers from ripe fruits, spices, bitters and earth, with a fine, grainy frame and juicy acidity lifting the long finish.

Redolent of cherry tart, with plenty of pastry accents. Juicy and fresh, featuring hints of black licorice midpalate. Slate and spice details show on the crunchy finish. Drink now through 2025.
