Russian River, Sonoma, CA
This Pinot Noir is produced from fruit that abounds with intense fruit and rich aromas. By "cold soaking" the crushed grapes and fermenting at moderate temperatures, bright fruit flavors are extracted from the grape, without harsh tannins. This Pinot Noir is aged in French oak barrels for ten months and has a red, dark brick color with intense aromas of black cherry highlighted by earthy clay and sweet spice. Fresh, ripe flavors of cranberry and dried red cherries with a soft berry mouth and a light finish.
