Trione Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006
Traditional winemaking practices were employed to make the 2006 Pinot Noir. Such techniques included open top fermentations, hand plunging the cap and three-tofour days of cold soaking before beginning primary fermentation. To accentuate the fruit component, 20% of the grapes were added whole cluster to the bottom of the fermenter. The 2006 Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 115, 667 and 777 from our Russian River Ranch. Each clone brings to the blend its own distinct characteristics. Clone 115 tends to be more fruit-forward with rich color. Clone 667 is earthy with good color and more pronounced ripeness. And clone 777 brings adds a silky texture and the signature Pinot Noir aroma.
