Classic Russian River Pinot, made in a drink-me-now style. Light in body, it's fully dry, with a silky texture framing cherry, cola, pomegranate and sautéed Portobello mushrooms with a splash of balsamic. A hint of oaky toast adds complexity. - S.H.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our grapes are picked at night to preserve freshness. The fruit is then carefully hand-sorted before de-stemming into a variety of open-top and closed-top fermenters. The must is given 5 days of cold soaking before fermentation is allowed to begin. Malolactic fermentation occurred in 100% French oak barrels. Our process allows us to craft a wine that is balanced, exhibiting layered complexity of flavors and aromas.

Tasting Notes:

The 2005 vintage is an elegant wine with a complex nose of fresh fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and cranberry followed by hints of white pepper, cola, and spicy, earthy notes. This wine offers crisp acidity upon entry unfolding with flavors of black cherry, raspberry and hints of vanilla, evolving and gaining complexity as the wine breathes. Rich, yet delicate, the mouthfeel is round, soft and intense, which leads to a lingering finish of Bing cherries and notes of toast.
