The challenge with Pinot Noir is to get enough extract from the
grape skins without turning the wine into something too heavy and
rustic. This wine has an elegant, pure fruit forward style with the
brilliant intensity of rich mouthwatering Bing cherry, blackberry
and spice. The luxurious density, beautiful structure and velvety
texture on the palate are hallmarks of this vintage and make this
wine a superlative example of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
