On first smell you realize that this wine is one with high toned fruit composed of a melange of mixed berries and dark cherries. The elevated aromas of toasted French Oak are evident and complement the bright fruit. This combination allows the two to harmoniously blend together to form a classic Russian River Pinot noir. After allowing it to air in the glass for a short while the violets and deep blueberry aromas start to show up. This wine shows its clone selection (Clone 37) and it growing enviroment to be a perfect union.
