    Winemaker Notes

    The core element of this Pinot Noir comes from the Anderson-Ross Vineyard, which is located on the Gravenstein Highway midway between the towns of Sebastopol and Forestville, and sits on a bench rising up from Atascadero Creek—a unique topography that’s often a bit cooler than the surrounding hillsides. This results in an elegant, sublime style of Russian River Pinot Noir. After a five-day cold soak, the fruit underwent fermentation with wild yeast in small, open-top fermenters and was gently punched down a few times each day. Free-run wine was drained directly to barrels and kept separate from the basket-press fraction. The wine aged in Boutes French oak barrels with a medium-toast to highlight the prominent flavor elements, then bottled without filtration. Highly aromatic, this vibrant wine shows red berries and rhubarb aromas overlaid on forest notes. The flavors echo the aromatic impressions with bramble and herbs ending on tart cherry flavors within an elegant mineral frame. Silky tannins with stylish acidity promise early drinking satisfaction along with interesting evolution over the next 2-4 years.

    Peter Paul, California
    The pursuit of fine wine requires an understanding of the vineyards from which grapes are sourced, a respect for the hand that nature deals us each vintage, and an understanding of how best to highlight natural terroir through minimal handling and other fermentation techniques in the cellar. At Peter Paul, we bring in California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Pacific-cooled Russian River Valley. We also harvest Cabernet Sauvignon in California's eponymous Napa Valley. And we make a very small amount of Oregon Pinot Noir as well.

    Each vineyard source has its own distinct character that requires special attention in the field as well as in the cellar. We barrel ferment our Chardonnay to best integrate plush fruit with toasty oak. Pinot Noir is punched down in open-top tanks by hand in a traditional Burgundian manner. Our Cabernet is gently crushed and then pumped over to maintain a firm, yet elegant, tannin structure. Barrel aging for all our wines occurs exclusively in French oak.

    However, the goal is not to mask in wood what the vineyard produces in flavor. Winemakers, Daniel Moore and Jeff Morgan, use time-honored methods in a modern tradition to bring each wine to fruition at its own speed. The resulting wines show elegant structure, yet don't hold back on flavor. Ultimately, the results can best be appreciated in your glass.

    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.
