2012 Sojourn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

"The Russian River Valley has been the epicenter for high quality Pinot noir in California since the 1970's and remains a promient source for New World Pinot noirs. Our 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot noir is a blend of two vineyards, Wohler and Riddle Vineyards, and offers a beautiful expression of the varietal and loamy soils it excels in. It has a medium ruby color with bright red cherry flavors, earth, and silky texture. Located in Green Valley, Riddle is a young vineyard with exceptional Goldridge soils and sits high up on a ridge overlooking many of the iconic Pinot noir vineyards in the region. Wohler Vineyard, near Forestville in the heart of the Russian River Valley, serves as the foundation for the blend, adds depth and lush textures. The resulting blend has a firm balanced structure and multiple layers of red fruit, earth, and floral notes." - Winery [+]
