Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Tasting Notes: Tart cherry, wild strawberry, pomegranate, rhubarb, cardamom, sandalwood and other exotic Indian spices. The texture is like silk-satin and wine is medium bodied and has fine tannins and the finish in long. Vineyard Notes: Olivet Grange Vineyard is the Inman Family's estate vineyard. This 10.5 acre vineyard is located at the junction of Olivet and Piner Roads amidst some of Sonoma County's and the Russian River Valley's most respected vineyards. The property is farmed organically. Harvest and Winemaking Notes: 2005 was a long, cool, even growing year, which was a contrast to the heat of 2004.

Established in 2000 with the planting of our organically farmed Olivet Grange Vineyard, Inman Family Wines is the result of Simon and Kathleen Inman's love of Pinot Noir and the soil that produces it. Our wines are produced exclusively with wine grapes from the Russian River Valley and made in an acid-driven, balanced style that is best enjoyed with your next meal. Our wine, although inspired by the complex yet subtle wines of Europe, are a unique expression of the Russian River Valley. We employ winemaking techniques that preserve nuance and highlight the unique qualities of our source vineyards. Harvesting fruit weeks before our neighbors and, more often than not, relying on the naturally occurring yeasts from the vineyard for fermentations. We believe making world class wine is a full circle process that relies equally on healthy soil, natural winemaking and sustainable business practices. Read less
