Russian River Valley

375ml - 2016 Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

375ml - 2016 Pinot Noir

As this wine is poured into your glass, you will notice its beautiful, dark ruby red color. The first impression starts in the nose with intense blackberry fruit aromas, cola and cassis jam followed by a touch of vanilla and tobacco accented with hints of baking spice and red licorice. The wine is richly textured and balanced with a beautiful brightness. Flavors of black cherry, tobacco and sweet barrel spice shine throughout. Fine tannins round out the long, smooth finish.

Russian River Valley

The Russian River Valley is one of the pinnacle areas for Pinot Noirs, known for making rich and flavorful, world-class Pinot Noir.

Why is this? One of the many reasons is the fog. Every day the fog is drawn in from the Pacific Ocean and can decrease the air temperature by as much as 40 degrees. This creates a cooler growing temperature that high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes require and gives the wines a touch more natural acidity for balance and complexity. Try Sonoma-Cutrer’s Russian River Valley Pinot Noir that exemplify the exceptional quality of fruit grown in the Russian River Valley.

Virtual Swirl

Virtual Swirl

Tasting wine begins well before the liquid ever touches your lips – it starts with a look, a swirl, and an intake of breath. The swirl serves to open your vintage and introduces oxygen which creates a bouquet of aromas and allows you to gauge viscosity and alcohol content. Our Russian River Valley’s swirl showcases its deep rosewood coloring indicative of a finely developed pinot noir and highlights aromas of cola and cassis with a touch of those classic red fruit flavors and a barrel spice.
