Green Valley of Russian River Valley Sonoma County. From Richebourg cuttings, this has always been a dry farmed vineyard. The nose shows a core of minerality with sweet oak, black cherry, violets, and a bit of spice. The palate is present for a Pinot with a black cherry, oak spice, black coffee and a deep earth note on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes
This wine is an ideal example of what Green Valley Pinot Noirs have to offer. This wine is delicate, but with a plush body, and overflowing with notes of tart cranberry, fresh pomegranate, bing cherry and wet earth. There is a perceived, fruit-driven sweetness through-out, carried by the round body, crisp edges, and silky tannins that end with hints of baking spices.
Starting with the 2015 harvest, we were immensely grateful to be given the opportunity of purchasing grapes from two blocks within the esteemed Hallberg Vineyard, along the edge of the Green Valley AVA. As with our first vintage in 2015 with this fruit, we give ample credit to the impeccable farming and near-perfect pick-dates of our two chosen clones, in the resulting appeal and elegance of this wine.
