2009 Pinot Noir, RRV
$48.00

 Silver Award
2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Pinot Noir is not a guy with big biceps. It’s a girl in a pretty dress. Pinot should be delicate, perfumed, reserved, smooth on the edges and haunting on the mind. We think we’ve captured that essence.
 
The Russian River Valley is ideal for this delicate grape with its cold mornings and warm days. The 2009 vintage gave us a very cool summer and the Pinot loved it. The new winet reached adolescence in the cave, inside the best French barrels experience can buy. It is young, so wait for it to develop in your glass.
