This vintage of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of our estate William James Vineyard west of Sebastopol, our estate Alana Vineyard near the town of Occidental, and the Earl Stephens Vineyard near Forestville. An epic trifecta of Russian River fruit. Situated in the cooler portions of this AVA, it offers defining and rich coastal characteristics while retaining the more classical notes of sarsaparilla and cherry cola often associated with Russian River Pinot Noir. The wine has a warm oak component that is well integrated and frames the beautiful fruit profile and expansive palate.
