Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of their own vineyards (85%) and a small portion of Dutton Ranch (15%). "This is hands down the best Pinot I have ever crafted" says their winemaker.

Explosive complexity! Perfumed raspberry, cherry blossom and brown spice aromas lead into rich, juicy black cherry, spicy plums, smoky nuances and hints of sweet cocoa – an array of aromas and flavors that seem to fan out like the plume of a peacock – supple power that finishes like satin. Very limited and very delicious!

My Notes:

About Davis Family:

Davis Family Vineyards is located on a ridge top in the center of California's renowned Russian River Valley. They have Zinfandel vines that were planted in 1896, and young hillside plantings of Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay. They also make a few barrels of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon with grapes from friends like the Dutton Family, who have deliciously distinctive vineyards.

This is a small family winery that thinks everything matters from vineyard to bottle. Only small lots of wine are produced and literally each and every one are handcrafted. They are passionate in their pursuit and believe wine is an essential element in a rich and wonderful life---adding a delicious layer to both meals and to friendships.
