Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 growing season was cool in the Russian River Valley, which translated to intense red fruit and spice characteristics in the wine. A lush, nuanced and thoughtful Pinot Noir, the wine has an unusually low alcohol which allows for a greater expression of the Green Valley AVA characteristics. Soft, chalky tannins combine with bright acidity to create a full mouthfeel that lingers on your palate. The 2009 Signaterra Pinot Noir also marks the first vintage that dons the Demeter Certified Biodynamic label.
