    Winemaker Notes

    Light garnet in color, fresh crushed raspberries, strawberries, and cranberries are all in the aroma of this bright, fruit-driven Pinot Noir, with a hint of cinnamon stick and spice in the background. On the palate, pomegranate and cranberry fruit have a zesty appeal, paired with the subtle, classic underbrush character that distinguishes Pinot Noir. Moderately light bodied, the soft tannins and fresh acidity strike a nice balance, creating a light fnish with red fruit and a touch of spice. Overall, this red wine shows genuine Californian winemaking at its best, with flavors that are approachable yet entertainingly complex.

    Our 2009 Smoking Loon Pinot Noir gets its fresh character from a number of cool climate California growing regions, including Monterey, Anderson Valley, Santa Barbara, and pairs nicely with pork and savory sandwiches. Try a roast pork loin or the ever-popular Thanksgiving turkey-and-cranberry sandwich with this versatile red.

    Russian River

    View all wine

    A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, The Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river which flows through the region. 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, further 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.
