Food Pairings for Kenwood Vineyards 2011 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
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. Fifty-five percent of the fruit was harvested from our estate Russian River vineyards. A touch of Syrah was added to the final blend to supply additional body and complexity. The 2011 vintage had a light crop load and an unusually cool growing season that preserved the grapes natural acidity and fresh fruit flavors. The vines were harvested in late September and early October, with ten percent of the harvest under¬going whole-berry fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruity flavors of the grape. The wine was then aged in newer French oak barrels for 10 months. This vintage of our Pinot Noir serves up a delicious array of berry fruit flavors. The excellent aroma combined with its rich body and smooth tannins, makes for an exceptionally enjoyable wine.
Excellent aroma of raspberry, plum and lavender join with notes of nutmeg and forest floor; bright acidity with smooth tannins and a lasting finish.
