Russian River Valley is famous for producing the high-quality grapes of Burgundian ancestry, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Russian River Valley is an exclusive location for growing grapes in Sonoma County. The finest Pinot Noir grapes thrive in sunny conditions with a long growing season with cooler temperatures. Each evening in the Russian River Valley, a cool fog rolls in from the Pacific lowering the temperatures at night by as much as 35 degrees. This downward temperature change has a positive impact on the quality of Pinot Noir by slowing the ripening process, allowing for thick grape skins to develop. As the skins become thicker, deeper, and darker, the flavours consequently increase in vibrancy and intensity. The extreme weather conditions of the Russian River Valley allows this region to be considered one of the most celebrated regions in the New World for the production of Pinot Noir.
The garnet burgundy shades and bright aromatic notes of red and black cherry, mocha and chocolate notes announce the ripe Pinot Noir character of this wine. The tannins are fully developed with and supported by toasty French oak, high acidity and rich warm alcohol, all in perfect balance to continue to improve in the bottle.
Ideally served with dishes with a touch of spice, such as crispy duck pancakes, grilled quail, pulled pork, seared salmon and tuna. Perfect for barbecues and dishes that include cherries or figs, rack of lamb, roast pork with herbs and fennel, chicken or turkey sausages, as well as mushroom risotto and grillled lobster.
