Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 Orogeny is a first release from this cool-climate Green Valley winery, the coolest region of the Russian River Valley. Grapes from just four small vineyards were selected to provide the bright fruit characteristics and aromas of mixed fresh berries, nutmeg and ginger, each foretelling the elegance and brightness of this wine.

"Sweet, well-defined cherries are the centerpiece of this ripe wonderfully continuous young Pinot, and, while creamy oak is everywhere apparent, it stays in service of fruit throughout. The wine is full, fleshy and nicely rounded in feel, and its balanced acidity brings a bit of brightness to its long, juicy, lightly tannic finish. Tasty now with savory pork entrees, it can only be helped by age, and it looks to reach its peak some three to five years by age, and it looks to reach its peak some three to five years down the line. It is an amazingly attractive buy at the price."
-Connoisseurs' Guide To California Wine
