Nestled in the rolling hills of western Sonoma County, the Russian River/Green Valley appellation is a perfect microclimate for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Only 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 50 miles north of San Francisco, the site is influenced by the sea's cooling breezes and drifting fog. That is why Marimar Torres selected this privileged location to "export" the Torres family legacy of fine wines to California.
Sensual aromas of black cherry and raspberry preserves, complemented by a note of nutmeg and spice from the
elegant oak. The palate is fleshy and round, with plush tannins that assure a long life. Richness and concentration
combine with softness and finesse in this classic example of Green Valley/Russian River Pinot.
"Here's a very dry, stylish Pinot, and while it has plenty of fruit, it has mushroom, balsamic and soy flavors that deepen and ground the cherries and cola. The overall impression is of a young, complex, fleshy Pinot that should hold and develop for five years."
