Winemaker Notes

Lovely aromas of dark blackberry and Bing cherry are balanced by notes of sage, underbrush, and a touch of forest floor. Tannins and color were abundant in 2015, giving us wines of deep color, firm, yet fine-grained tannins and a rich, juicy mid-palate. The 2015 wines are going to be extremely pleasing upon release, but because of their structure and intensity, will reward anyone who should choose to lay some down for five-ten years or more.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Superbly crafted, the ripe fruit and well-structured 2014 EnRoute Pinot Noir deftly shows the power and balance often exhibited from the Russian River Valley. The wine's richness pairs it well with well-seasoned lamb chops. (Tasted: November 17, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Lush and velvety, this is a robust wine, richly layered in baked strawberry and huckleberry flavors. The palate is seasoned in tones of clove, cinnamon and orange, with a vibrant backbone of acidity and taut tannins that keeps it fresh in feel within a powerful context of ripeness
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Deliciously plump and juicy, centered on rich plum, cherry andraspberry flavors, all fresh and vibrant, offering depth without weight. Drink now through 2025.

EnRoute was established in the Russian River Valley in 2007 by the partners of Napa Valley’s Far Niente winery. Devoted to producing Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, EnRoute introduced its first wine, “Les Pommiers,” in May 2009. Les Pommiers is named for the apple orchards that once flourished in the region, and reflects a blend of vineyards primarily from Green Valley and the upper Middle Reach area of the Russian River Valley AVA.

The name, EnRoute, is a nod to the journey the partners—including Beth Nickel, Erik Nickel, Jeremy Nickel, Dirk Hampson and Larry Maguire—have taken on their way to producing Pinot Noir, which began in the 1980s in Burgundy. While Far Niente’s vision is exclusively focused on Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, the partners still enjoyed traveling and tasting the great Pinot Noirs of the world. Eventually, sister winery Nickel & Nickel’s single-vineyard program provided the opportunity to venture into the Russian River Valley. After a few years of producing wines from Russian River, the partners decided to make a serious commitment to the region, acquired two remarkable vineyards and established EnRoute, devoted to Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.

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.
