Winemaker's Notes

The 2000 vintage of our Russian River Valley Pinot noir has bright, forward fruit flavors of raspberry and cranberry interlaced with truffle, cedar, toffee, and spice tones. The extraordinarily long finish is of cherry and vanilla. A touch of oak and well integrated tannins complete the profile, producing a wine with density, viscosity and great clarity. A complex, well structured Pinot noir exemplifying the great wines of the Russian River Valley.

The utmost care has been used handling the grapes that make our Russian River Pinot noir. After an extended period of cold soaking in small open top tanks, fermentation is allowed under careful temperature control. The cap is hand punched throughout insuring gentle handling and maximum flavor and color extraction.
