Opens with aromas of ripe blackberry, Marionberry and cherry on the nose. The rich fruit is balanced by ample acidity on the palate, creating a lighter style Pinot Noir than the nose may first suggest.

Winemaker Notes
This 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with aromas of ripe blackberry, Marionberry and cherry on the nose. The rich fruit properties are balanced by ample acidity on the palate, creating a lighter style Pinot Noir than the nose may first suggest.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine has enough body to enjoy on its own, but really shines when paired with tomato-based dishes.

Production Notes
The fruit for this Russian River Valley Pinot Noir came from the Mt. Eden Clone block of the Foley Family owned Trenton Station vineyard. This vineyard is a very level growing site with plenty of exposure to bring the fruit to optimum ripeness. After harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels. After aging for 15 months in French oak (18% new), the wine was bottled.
Vineyard Notes
2016 was an excellent vintage in the Russian River Valley. Although yields were slightly lower than in 2015, fruit quality was high across all varietals. Veraison set in early and completed by the end of July - beginning of August, and weeks of warm temperatures pushed harvest ahead of schedule. The grapes for our 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir were harvested in the cool morning hours of September 9, 2016 at optimal ripeness.
