Winemaker Notes

Constantly evolving aromatics reveal rose petals, wintergreen, sassafras, and cedar among waves of ripe red, blue, and black fruits. Natural density on the palate contributes verve, precision, and focus to the layered, enveloping flavors. Lilac, Asian spice, truffle, and blackcurrant unfold with a deft balance between lively acidity and broad tannin. The chewy mid-palate is deeply-textured yet poised and dynamic. Pine needle freshness and tobacco leaf complexity on the long resonating finish — just beautiful.

Critical Acclaim

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pinot Noir Finn is a blend of Occidental Road and DuMOL Estate vineyards. Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Finn offers evocative notes of Bing cherries, fresh raspberries, wild blueberries and mulberries with touches of fragrant soil, underbrush, wild thyme and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house in the mouth with very firm, ripe grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, it finishes very long and earthy. This should cellar gracefully over the next 18-20 years.

The flagship 2015 Pinot Noir Finn has more tannin as well as density. Terrific notes of dried flowers, red currants, menthol, and earth, medium to full body, a layered, concentrated mid-palate, and a great, great finish all define this seriously good Russian River Pinot Noir. It’s one of the tighter, more backward 2015s from Andy Smith, but it’s packed with potential. Give it another 2-3 years, and it’s capable of keeping for over a decade.

Russian River

View all products

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.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
