Bear Boat Pinot Noir Russian River 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale ruby color with moderately intense aromas of strawberry and vanilla notes. Medium body, balanced acidity and soft tannins. Grapes come from cool climate areas – 1/2 from Russian River, 1/4 from Sonoma Coast and 1/4 from Carneros. Fruit is harvested by hand in small containers with the philosophy that higher attention to detail yields higher quality. Pinot Noir grapes are 100% de-stemmed for optimal fruit and tannin purity; The must goes through a pre fermentation cold soak for 3 days for color extraction. Only slow growing, tightly grained oak trees are sourced for the barrels for more refined flavor and tannin richness. Aged for nine months in 25% new French oak, 25% one year old, 25% two year old and 25% three year old barrels. The Pinot Noir is varied in its aging regimen for layers of complexity and balance." -Winery

Bearboat is a wine based out of the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California. The name plays on the theme of the Russian River - the bears, the symbol of Russia, are in a rowboat on the river. The principal winemaker is Raphaël Brisbois, an Alsatian who originally worked for several fine Champagne houses before coming to the states, where he worked for sparkling producers including Iron Horse. He began making still wines at Bearboat for Remy Cointreau in the mid 1990s. The wines are sourced from vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley and Sonoma, using cool-climate varietals best suited to the region’s growing conditions such as Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.  Read less

Clear pale ruby color with pronounced strawberry, and bing cherry aromas. Delicate body, well balanced acidity and lingering finish of strawberries and hint of vanilla spice. - Winery
