- Russian River Valley
River Road Ranch encompasses 115 acres in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation. Located on the western bench of the Santa Rosa Plain, the vineyard thrives in well-drained soils. The region’s fog-cooled nights are ideal for this varietal. We hand-harvested the Pinot Noir from distinct blocks, clones #115, #777, Pomard and UCD#37, a classic California selection. Each clone contributed distinctive flavors and textural characteristics.
A classic Russian River Valley Pinot, this lovely wine presents aromas of dark cherry, exotic spice, green tea and a slight earthiness we call forest floor. It is silky on the palate, beautifully balanced with a long finish. The firm structure suggests excellent aging potential, 7 - 10 years.
