Winemaker Notes

The wine shows enticing aromas of cinnamon, rich red and black berries, along with baked cherry pie. This fresh California Pinot is typical of the Russian River Valley appellation, and shows layered flavors of black cherry and blackberry fruit compote.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From the Russian River Valley and the newest single vineyard from this team (the first vintage was 2012), the 2013 Pinot Noir Giusti Vineyard is another big, rich, full-flavored Pinot Noir that gives up slightly lifted notes of dark fruits, graphite and peppery spice. Almost completely destemmed and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak, it’s a sensational Pinot Noir with terrific purity in its concentrated, layered and textured personality. It's superb today, but will cruise through at least 2023.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Deceptively complex, with subtle, vibrant raspberry and blackberry flavors that are fresh and vibrant, revealing touches of black cherry and red plum that are expansive. Ends with a touch of crushed rock and fresh-turned earth. Drink now through 2022.
CG 90
Connoisseurs' Guide
Rich, relatively weighty and checking in on the slightly higher end of the ripeness scale, this heady effort fixes on full-blown, distinctly black cherry fruit. It is not much for nuance and may not be even as time passes, but it shows great depth and varietal authority albeit with a minimal touch of heat as the cost. It is big, solid stuff and it succeeds in the style, but it needs a few years of age and is not a Pinot to pick when looking to complement delicate dishes.

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

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.
