2015 PINOT NOIR, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
The 2015 Charm Pinot Noir is sourced solely from the Sundawg Vineyard in the Russian River Valley’s cool western sub-appellation of Green Valley.
The wine is one-hundred percent Pommard clone, fermented with ten percent whole cluster inclusion, and aged for fourteen months in thirty percent new French oak.
The Charm is a nuanced melange of red fruit, baking spices and firm structure; it is a classic representation of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
Enticing and inviting, The 2015 Charm Pinot Noir has a vibrant garnet color and displays classic Russian River Valley aromatics. Subtle strawberry, bing cherry, and rose petal accents intermingle with light cola, sarsaparilla and geranium on the expressive nose. The plush mid-palate exhibits hints of blueberry, fennel seed, and allspice. Succulent tannins frame the persistent finish of red apple skin, pluot, and persimmon.
