Russian River Vineyards Pinot Noir Stony Point Vineyard
Russian River Vineyards
United States - California - Russian River Valley

The wine is produced from a vineyard in the Sebastopol Hills neighborhood of the Russian River Valley, less than twenty miles from the coast where the climate is affected daily by the ocean, wind and its fog. This cool climate, combined with the sun exposure provided by a southern-facing hillside vineyard, creates a low yielding, slow ripening environment which is perfect for Pinot Noir. The balance of fruit and minerality shows beautifully in this easy-drinking crowd pleaser! The result is a wine with especially bright acidity which is perfectly balanced with tart, bing cherry accents, earthy notes, forest floor, mushroom, hints of smoke. Rich and creamy on the palate, this is an excellent example of a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
