"Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a classic wine from this region as well as a great example of the style of this estate. Ripe black cherries, currants, flowers, and earthy notes all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated 2016 that has a beautiful sense of purity and elegance. Drink it anytime over the coming decade."

"Elderberry essence, blueberry perfume, blackberry tea, some grapefruit rind and granite. Medium body, vibrant acidity, fine tannins and a fresh, citrusy finish with tons of tangy fruit. Drink now."
