Pinot Noir is the newest member of The Calling portfolio. It's a collaboration between Jim Nantz the famous golf and sports commentator (who also happens to be a HUGE wine enthusiast) and importer Peter Deutsch. For this wine they sourced prime Pinot Noir grapes from the the prestigious Dutton Ranch vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Three different vineyard sites were chosen to bring contrasting and distinct character to the final blend. Gail Ann Vineyard, located in the warmer end of the Russian River Valley, contributes ripe tropical elements to the 2011 vintage. The Mill Station Vineyard is one of the coolest spots in Russian River, and lends a strong minerality and structural backbone. Dutton Hill is a rolling hill in another cool region of the valley with sandy, well-drained soil for additional complexity and structure. The wine was aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. It shows classic flavors of black cherries, strawberries, cola, wild mushrooms, toast and brown spices are framed by vibrant acidity. The finish lingers with more berry and cherry notes.
