2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

2018 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

6 bottle limit. This lively pinot noir is grown in the colder pockets of the Russian River Valley appellation, famous for producing incredible pinots. Bob built his legacy in the Russian River, making this wine a personal favorite for him and our team every year. This vintage is no different, with aromas of grilled strawberry and allspice, this pinot is all about rich and luscious fruit. 2018 was extraordinary, blessing us with a bounty of extremely high-quality fruit. We finally have enough to share!

Vintage
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above-average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
