This opulent pinot noir was sourced from two vineyards from the Dutton Ranch in the western part of the Russian River Valley. The cool vineyard sites allow us to retain beautiful natural brightness while the sandy Goldridge loamy soils make the vines struggle for water, intensifying the beautiful red fruit flavors.
On the nose immediately violets jump out of the glass, followed by red and black cherry and warm spices. Sexy and enticing, brooding and mysterious, brightening up with a smooth finish.
