2015 Estate Pinot Noir, Walter’s Vineyard, Russian River Valley
This is coveted Pinot Noir from our Estate, which was planted to the French clones ‘Dijon 777’ and ‘Pommard’. The Pommard clone accentuates more of a fruity character here, whereas the 777 brings more of those spicy notes and tones to the finished wine.
We find an abundance of red fruit, with raspberry and red current playing the biggest rolls, and some blueberry/ blackberry notes wafting in from time to time. The gentle barrel influence is all French, which we believe helps uplift these fruit characters, and adds layers to that special Pinot Noir texture.
Only 350 cases made.

Visitors are encouraged to wander down from the tasting room and then meander in no particular order among natural paths lined only in low fieldstones smothered with moss.
As lizards scamper about and red tailed hawks fly above, visitors can spend as little as 10 minutes or as much time as they like.
The view from the terrace is like a painting, layered with greens and golds, gradually blending into deeper earth tones and finally fading to hazy purple hues at the horizon.
