A classic Carneros beauty, ripe notes of cherry cola, spiced hibiscus flower, dried strawberries, and clove are accented by other exotic spices, earth, and hints of salinity. Whole cluster fermentation allows the vibrant fruit to be the focus, with fine-grained tannins backing an already exquisite texture full of verve and length. Balanced and full of energy, this showcases one of California’s non-coastal Pinot sites in all its glory.

"Plummy with notes of earthy dried herb, black tea, and contrast of vanilla, this vineyard-designate is firmly structured in tannin, with a sandy, grippy texture. High-toned hints of rose, violet, and strawberry add lift and invitation." -7/1/2021
A remarkable wine, absolutely textbook Russian River Valley style, the sandy and well-drained Goldridge soil series there contributing to the lower alcohol, long growing season, and a wine that is especially well balanced.

Red fruits such as cherries and strawberries are detected, combined with spicy notes such as black pepper, cinnamon, and mineral touches, very characteristic of this peculiar terroir. It is necessary to let the wine open to discover the multiple aromatic layers of this great Pinot Noir from Patagonia.
