2012 Pinot Noir RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750 ml

2012 Pinot Noir RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750 ml

2012 Pinot Noir RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750ml

Power, elegance, strength and finesse are ample in this generous wine. Rich, pungent aromas leap from the glass, cherry-pit, tar, aniseed, herbs, earthy, cherry liquor, marmalade, citrus blossoms, violet, rose petals, combine in layer after layer of richness that keeps coming in waves. Elaborately flavored, this extraordinarily complex wine is a full-bodied wine that is stuffed with pastry-filling cherries, dried herbs, blackberries, currants and raspberries, with exotic additions of cola, red licorice and vanilla. This wine is easy to enjoy and will continue to please for many years.  The vineyard is located near 116 and Stoney Point Road on rich, loamy soil.  It is very influenced by the ebb and flow of the fog bank that creeps up the valley throughout the growing season.  The grower is the Pasta King and it's really a fun relationship!

We love the quality that this vineyard produces - very fruity, bright cherry-candy! The power and influence that the Russian River Valley exerts on the vines is tremendous, warm days with cool foggy nights produce the brightest fruit flavors in the New World. The region is cooler than MOST of inland Sonoma County,  and slows down the maturation of the Pinot Noir into October, even when most Russian River Pinots are picked in September.  This additional hang time on the vine developes very refined tannins, flavors, aromas and mouthfeel and creates a pinot that will last for many years.  The Pinot Noirs that come from the Russian River Valley are power houses and like a fast little muscle car - it really gets you going! Rich, dense, bright and fruity!
