This full-bodied Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of three Russian River Valley vineyards: Leras Vineyards, Nunez Vineyards, and Elsbree. The Russian River Valley provides a cooling fog from the pacific allowing the grapes to develop full flavor maturity over an extended growing season. The 2009 Pinot was aged for 18 months in one and two year old Francois Freres barrels. The result is a lovely Pinot with a myriad of meal paring versatility.
