This Pinot is here to tell the story. Right out of the bottle it has a dazzling ruby and garnet color. A wide array of aromas jump from the glass – dark sweet cherry, blackberry, rose petal, vanilla, plum, orange zest, and pomegranate. The flavors are just as intense and varied – cherry cola, vanilla, coffee, boysenberry and huckleberry, and a perfect touch of spicy nutmeg and clove. This wine has great tannin structure and tons of body, which will only get better with time. Only three hundred cases produced.
This 2014 Pinot Noir just keeps impressing us and gaining complexity in the bottle. Green Valley is a tiny and cooler sub appellation of the Russian River valley. This gives it’s vineyard even more ability to produce great Pinots from an already epic Pinot growing region.
Vibrant, ruby red color. Aromas of red fruit, blackberry, persimmon and hint of sweet tobacco.
On the palate this Zin has a clean, fresh beginning – it’s middle is full and round with balanced acid and smooth tannins, which carry through the finish. Flavors of cooked raspberry, rich cocoa powder, and white peppercorn evolve into a finish of summer berry tart and ripe cherries.
Harvest date: September 12, 2016.
Harvest Brix: 25.2
Only two hundred cases produced.
Aromas of cranberry, vanilla, raspberry and dried herbs. Flavors of cola, anise, rhubarb, and tart raspberry. A soft front followed by bright acidity and full tannins. This Pinot will continue to mature in the cellar.

The 2015 growing season created the opportunity to achieve rich tannins and bold acidity in our Pinot Noirs. It was a very small crop with thick skins and small berries. Our ‘15 Pinot Noirs have beautiful color and surprisingly large body for Pinots – yet the tannins are wonderfully smooth. It should be a celebrated vintage for its uniqueness and fantastic wines.
Flavors of ripe bing cherry, baked raspberry, and subtle tropical notes. Coupled with the classic spicy notes – cardamon, nutmeg, and allspice – that come from good Green Valley sites. The big, smooth tannins and full acidity carry this Pinot Noir through from start to finish. It should drink beautifully for the next 5 -7 years.
