Vintage Notes

Complex aromatics and a rich, velvety texture are the hallmarks of our 2018 Director's Cut Pinot Noir. Fragrant notes of raspberries, plums, tea leaves, and cedar emerge on the nose, while the palate presents lush flavors of cherries, blackberries, and anise that broaden on the spicy finish. This wine is well-structured, beautifully layered, and has supple tannins.

Viticulture

Certified Sustainable 

Russian River Valley
The Russian River Valley offers the perfect climate for growing Pinot Noir. Fog rolls in nightly from  the nearby  Pacific Ocean and cools the temperature down  as  much  as 35- 40 degrees each evening. This temperature differential allows the grapes to ripen slowly and retain their natural acidity for better balance. Loam and alluvial soil compositions create rich, fragrant Pinot Noir that offers pronounced floral notes and a distinctly earthy character.

Vinification

Once the grapes are picked and pressed, the juice is placed into open-top fermenters and punched down several times a day for extraction.
