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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit was night harvested to preserve freshness, and hand-sorted before de-stemming into open- and closed-top fermenters. The must was cold soaked 3-10 days before going through natural, extended fermentation. As fermentation nears completion, the wine is drained freely from the tanks into 100% Burgundian oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. This process allows us to craft a beautifully balanced wine that exhibits a layered complexity of flavors and aromas.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 J Vineyards Pinot Noir is a lush, full wine exhibiting the expressive character of the Russian River Valley. An excellent growing season provided a wine of great depth, with elegantly composed layers. Aromas of milk chocolate, rose petals, and wild blackberry fill the glass. As the wine opens there are hints of caramel, cinnamon and cloves. The traditional Pinot Noir flavors of cherry and strawberry are fully integrated with the subtle oak tannins.
