Picket Fence Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Only 500 barrels produced. The Pinot Noir grapes are hand harvested at night a labor intensive process that helps retain the freshness and acidity so crucial to well balanced Pinot Noir. This wine has an elegant fruit forward style with lots of mouthwatering Bing cherry and raspberry flavor but it has a luxurious density in the mouthfeel. Its fruit coupled with the velvety texture make this a superlative example of Russian River Pinot.

Picket Fence wines grew out of our long friendship and a shared desire to create handcrafted wines that reflect the awe-inspiring appeal of Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. This spectacular region is a place of unparalleled beauty with unique growing conditions and vineyards. When we decided to make a wine together, we embraced the Russian River Valley as our winemaking home. Picket Fence also reunites old friends, vineyard manager Pete Opatz and winemaker Don Van Staaveren, two wine legends who have crafted some of Sonoma County's most highly acclaimed wines. Pete brings intimate knowledge of the Russian River appellation and cultivates flavorful grapes that fully express the exceptional characteristics found in our Picket Fence vineyards. Don blends these grapes to reveal their true essence, creating luscious wines with the classic Russian River profile of richness and balance. Created in small lots, Picket Fence Chardonnay and Pinot Noir celebrate our passion for the Russian River Valley and our sentiment that wine is a way of bringing family and friends together. We invite you to celebrate life with Picket Fence Wines. Read less
