This 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot noir is a blend of three vineyards. Wohler and Riddle vineyards make up the majority, and in 2015 the wine included components from the famed Pratt Vineyard located in the Freestone Hills. Pratt provides additional layers of dark fruit and notes of forest floor, in addition to depth and structure on the palate. It balances out the red fruit profile and lush texture from Wohler and Riddle.
The resulting blend has a firm, balanced structure and multiple layers of red and dark fruit, earth and floral notes. This Pinot noir exudes intriguing aromatics that lead to a lush, silky texture. It has medium-ruby color and is drinking exceptionally well right now.
