Always the most challenging, yet the most fun blend to craft. The nose is redolent of blackberries, plums, toffee and crème brûlée. The rich/full tannins accentuate the blackberry/plummy fruits and complement the creamy, silky finish and the concentrated berry/spicy flavors. This wine truly expresses the classic finesse and depth of complexity that you would expect from Russian River Valley pinot noir. A classic Russian River Valley blend comprised of over 95% Estate fruit.
