The Vineyard

Pinot Noir is always the most expressive when it’s allowed to ripen at a very leisurely pace in mild conditions. The Montaffi Vineyard, in the Russian River Valley, allows the grapes soak to up the afternoon sun, which pushes them slowly toward maturity, while the persistent morning and evening fog prolongs the growing season and keeps the acidity bright.

Fermentation:  Cold soaked prior to warm fermentation

Aging:              Nine months in French oak

Suggested retail:          $48.00

Winemaking – In this 2013 vintage, we worked with the famed Dijon clone 777 and isolated a single vineyard area in the Russian River Valley.  Fragile and notoriously temperamental, Pinot Noir requires gentle handling and exacting attention to detail from start to finish. The tiny clusters were meticulously hand selected in the cool of the morning and carefully sorted before a few days of “cold soak” to maximize flavor extraction while pulling out only the supplest of tannins. Several days of warm fermentation further enhanced flavor extraction and added layers of complexity. The new wine was gently pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and nine months of aging for seamless integration of fruit and oak.


Tasting - The gorgeous, jewel-like ruby hue hints at the pleasures to come. Deliciously true to the variety and the terroir, it opens with a delicate rush of red fruit – wild raspberry, bing cherries – Silky, fruit forward, youthful, with just the right kiss of French oak, this sippable Pinot Noir is a wine that will complement many foods!
