Starting off the Pinot Noirs, the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was mostly destemmed and brought up in 31% new French oak. Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a wonderful bouquet of black cherries, darker raspberry, spice, and hints of earth and forest floor. It's a darker, spicy Russian River Valley effort that's medium to full-bodied and has terrific balance, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It shows the purity and class that now defines this estate. It's well worth seeking out and is going to keep for at least a decade.

Violet notes accent the juicy crushed red cherry and raspberry tart flavors, backed by vibrant acidity. Exhibits spicy focus midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with flint and hot stone hints. Drink now through 2024. 8,000 cases made.
