This brilliant Pinot Noir has piercing aromas of black cherry tinged with new oak vanilla. Endless layers of the sweet tannin and intensely perfumed with red raspberry! A wine that spared no cost in its production and lives up to its legendary status! It’s a Slam Dunk and one of the best Pinot’s we’ve had all year!
About the wine
In 2016, was an extraordinary vintage for the hidden valley north of Russian River. In 16’ the fruit came in earlier than usual, mainly because the rich flavored grapes were already physiologically ripe and ready for their hedonistic journey. Each bin separated by clone and into different fermenters, allowing each to fully express its unique and intense personality. The result is a phenomenal wine with lush and generous mouth feel all infused with ripe black cherry preserves but perfectly braced with cool evening acidity - keeping it just fresh enough to keep you coming back for more!

"This Pinot has a very fine aromatic profile, lightly expressive but vibrant with shimmering red berry fruit, burnt cherry and a touch of toasted orange zest. It is complex yet it is so approachable with it’s soft medium-bodied qualities and slightly granular tannin. Supple and utterly harmonious on the finish. Maybe the best, I’ve tasted from the producer! - Nicely done!"
