Elegant, layered and cellar-worthy Pinot Noir from California's Russian River Valley AVA
In stock

"Crafted from up to 100 individual small lots, our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir offers depth and nuance on its expressive, intricately layered palate. A classic example of this renowned region, the wine opens with notes of black and red cherry, wild blackberry, blueberry and pomegranate. Deeper into the velvety-smooth palate, hints of anise and cola blend with suggestions of toast and barbeque smoke. Approachable and balanced upon release, fine tannins and structure will allow for elegant aging over the next five to seven years. Pair this Pinot Noir with a grilled pork chop with a peach-bourbon barbeque sauce or a gourmet burger with blue cheese and caramelized onions. For a cheese pairing, try alongside blue cheese with pickled cherries." - J. Vineyards

"The grapes for this Pinot Noir were sourced from cool areas throughout the Russian River Valley growing region. We hand-harvested whole grape clusters, de-stemmed and gravity-fed them into small, three- to 10-ton open-top fermenters. Following a five-day cold soak, the must fermented for seven to 10 days using Burgundy yeast and natural inoculums. The wine was drained to barrel to undergo malolactic fermentation in 100% French oak, approximately 30% of which was new. Each vineyard, block and clone are kept separately until blending."- Winemakers Notes
