Winemaker Notes

Aromas are dominated by red fruit tones of Blackberry and Boysenberry, while black fruits dominate on the palette. The vibrant aromas expand and give way to red plum, toasted brioche and allspice. On the palate the wine has integrated acidity and fine tannins that should allow for mid-term cellaring.

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

This wine shows the power of blending across multiple sites, all vineyard-designates of their own (Martaela Estate, Cohn Estate, Tilton Hill Estate and Zio Tony Ranch). Reductive initially, it is demure in earthy forest, nutmeg and sage as more forceful flavors of rose petal, blackberry and blood orange highlight a lightning rod of fresh acidity.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Benovia Pinot Noir is a red wine with great presence on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rewarding from start to finish. Pair its lovely aromas and flavors of dark berries and wood with tea-smoked duck over jasmine rice. (Tasted: December 10, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Ben Dewane and Novian Anderson never met, yet they raised their children with similar old-fashioned values. Hard work brings its own rewards, they would say. Be the best at what you do. Surround yourself with good people, and let them get to work. And never, ever produce anything that wouldn't make you proud.

With such similar family backgrounds, it's no wonder Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane would eventually find each other and marry. Together, they began a journey that led them to establish a winery that would make them, and their fathers, proud -- proud enough that the Benovia name pays homage to Ben and Novian.

While the Russian River Valley is a large appellation with multiple climate zones and soil types, it is best known for cool-climate varieties, with Pinot Noir as the most celebrated. The grapes benefit from a reliable late afternoon flow of Pacific Ocean fog through the Petaluma Gap and along the Russian River Valley that ensures slow and steady ripening and the preservation of grape acidity. Today many of California’s most highly regarded Pinot Noir vineyards are in the Russian River Valley, along with its sub-appellation, Green Valley.

Historically Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs had bright red fruit and delicate earthy, mineral notes. But changes in viticultural and winemaking practices have led to stylistic changes in some of the region’s wines. Adjustments to canopy management, among other techniques, have resulted in riper fruit and bolder wines as well. These show flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cola, spice and darker, loamy earth tones, accenting traditional Pinot Noir notes of strawberry, raspberry and light cherry.
