Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Alta Russian River Pinot Noir has a wonderfully rich, creamy mouthfeel with red cherry fruit in every sip. The nose is like smelling a fresh baked cherry tart with Bavarian cream on a hot crust. It literally melts in your mouth, as the flavors unravel and reveal themselves, one by one. The wine further expresses its complexity and identifies its terroir with earthy notes, quintessential to Sonoma Coast. All together, this wine is bright and well knit. It is drinking well now, with good aging potential.

Wine Enthusiast
Tannic at first, this structured, youthful wine needs time in the glass to become itself, which is a well-made, lightly touched expression of wild strawberry and spice. The grapes come from the Moore Vineyard.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
