Winemaker Notes

This quintessential Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is deep ruby red in color with red cherry and exotic spice aromas of cardamom and star anise. The supple palate unravels in layers with succulent flavors of Santa Rosa plum, raspberry and black tea. Fine tannins round out the finish and are balanced by its youthful acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Exhibits a distinctive streak of crushed rock and loamy earth amid the tannic wild berry and savory notes, showing a kiss of oak and transforming into a celebration of licorice and anise elements. Drink now through 2025.
JS 92
James Suckling
Crushed rapsberries and blueberries with hints of violets. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a linear backbone. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pinot Noirs are richer wines. The 2014 Pinot Noir Russian River, which is in bottle, displays a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, medium to full body, and lots of raspberry and black cherry fruit that moves toward bluer fruits on the palate. This is a beauty to drink over the next 7-8 years.

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.
