Winemaker's Notes

The highest appellation in America for this noble grape is "Russian River Valley." Not forgetting the lovely wines of Oregon, Carneros, and Lompoc which only prove and accent the rather mysterious and wondrous elements that create these truly great wines in this small elbow jutting into the Pacific. That same elbow nudged the judges of rather persnickety San Francisco International Wine Competition into awarding this Toad Hollow Pinot Noir a gold medal. Not only the best but also rather embarrassingly, the least expensive of the gold medal winners. Fog, river bottom gravel, and the longest and slowest ripening season in America solve this mystery that is so delicious. Toad Hollow Pinot Noir sits astride the Russian River and listens to its cool melodies until it ripens.

Alcohol: 13.6% by volume
