The Russian River Valley is a haven for pinot noir. This wine comes from the cooler areas of Sebastopol and Occidental, northwest of the town of Sonoma. Bob honed his craft in the famous Goldridge soils of Russian River Valley and this wine exemplifies the passion and expertise that goes into its meticulous creation. This region is marked by early morning fog migrating inland from the Pacific Ocean, dissipating mid-day to allow sunlight and warmth on the vines, before returning around dusk. This extraordinary shift happens in very few places in the world and produces luscious fruit that shines in the glass, culminating in a bright and lively wine.
On the nose, you’ll discover hibiscus, cranberry, and fresh clove. Silky tannins seduce your palate, complemented by notes of toasted pie crust and ripe cherry, making this a quintessential example of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
