Pensively purple in color and alluringly scented with marvelous aromas of juicy black cherry fruit, cocoa and ginger backed by lurking noted of cardamom and violets. The wine’s flavors are boldly expressive and distinctly stacked upon one another as if they were painted by Rothko.
This Pinot Noir is made from berries hand-picked from vines scattered about the lush hills and cool valleys of Sonoma’s Russian River. In this blissful landscape dotted with lofty redwoods between which morning fog slithers, precious grapes are collected and brought to the winery where they are fermented and aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels. This is no ordinary Pinot Noir.
