Winemaker Notes

Savory and complex with enticing fruit aromatics, this wine captures the essence of Russian River Valley Pinot. Sophisticated aromas of bacon fat, baking spice and forest floor add nuance to intense layers of blackberry, cherry and preserved strawberry. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a lovely tannin structure with refreshing acidity that supports the fruit and draws the wine to a long and satisfying close.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense ruby/plum-hued 2012 Pinot Noir reveals a big, complex, Vosne-Romanée / Chambolle-Musigny nose of forest floor, bouquet garni, blue, red and black fruits, and a broad, savory, rich mouthfeel with no heaviness. Full-bodied yet gorgeously pure and complex, this is about as good as Pinot Noir can be. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Bravo!

Since our inaugural 2001 vintage of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Migration has developed a refined and compelling style that balances vibrancy and finesse. In the years since, Migration has taken wing beyond our Anderson Valley origins as we have explored Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California’s finest cool-climate appellations, most notably the legendary Sonoma Coast. Today, Migration works with a handful of acclaimed growers to produce a small portfolio of sought-after Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, including our flagship Sonoma Coast wines, and our coveted vineyard-designates. These sophisticated, Burgundian-varietal wines highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and balanced oak influence.

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.
