A beautiful garnet color is accompanied by notes of lavender, raspberry reduction, pencil lead and damp earth on the nose. The wine has a pleasant tannic grip providing structure for flavors of blackberry, plum, wild cherry and Asian spice.

Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has a smoky, savory nose: woodsmoke, pipe tobacco, smoked meat and turned earth over a core of ripe red and black cherries and berries. Light to medium-bodied with good fruit purity in the mouth, it offers tons of savory layers along with firm, grainy tannins and great freshness to lift the long, flavorful finish. 1,286 cases produced.

The largest production Pinot Noir is the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, and it was all destemmed and brought up in French oak, 20% being new. Its medium ruby color gives way to a ripe, exuberant, flashy Pinot Noir that has loads of spice, ripe black cherries, earth, and just a hint of cola. It's textured, balanced, and has tons of charm.
