|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
A Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with intense fruit and spice aromas and layered texture. Aromas are dominated by red fruits of plum and vine-ripened raspberry, while black fruits dominate on the palate. The vibrant aromas expand and give way to red plum, toasted brioche and allspice. On the palate the wine has integrated acidity and fine tannins that should allow for mid-term cellaring. As always, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
This wine represents a handful of stellar vineyards, including Martaella, Cohn and Zio Tony Ranch. It shines in tones of forest floor, dense black fruit and cardamom, with lifted acidity forming a cohesive whole. It all broadens into a long, well-integrated finish.
As to the Pinot Noirs, the 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers darker cherry fruits as well as some smoky earth, medium body, ripe, rounded tannins, and some classic Russian River spice and savory floral nuances. It's a charming, delicious, easygoing Pinot Noir with plenty of character.
