Kenwood Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley viticultural appellation. The Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean and serves as a channel for the cool ocean fog to move inland from the coast. Kenwood produces its Russian River blend from vineyards located off River Road, where the soil combined with the ocean’s cooling influence creates the ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir. A full 73 percent of the grapes used for the blend were harvested from our own estate Russian River vineyards.
Editorial Reviews for Kenwood Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Thick molasses and earth notes are a touch savory on the nose, with some cherry showing through behind the earthiness. Chewy and more fruit forward in the mouth with cherry and licorice notes and a finish of vanilla and earth.
