This beautiful Pinot Noir displays the qualities of an exceptional, yet small vintage, expressing purity of place, boasting aromas of ripe Bing cherry, juicy raspberry and tangerine zest, with hints of underbrush and dried herbs from the whole-cluster inclusion. Flavors of wild berry, rosemary, black tea and rose petal unfold on the palate, followed by hints of cedar box that accentuate the rich fruit flavors. The fine-grained, slightly firm tannins develop into a soft, velvety finish, complemented by mouthwatering, vibrant acidity.

Crisp acidity buoys sharp red fruit in this delectable wine-a blend of multiple sites across the appellation. Medium build, it shows youthful tannins and oak that supports without intrusion, allowing the crunch of cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate to speak forcefully.

The 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River Selection is a classic, well-made California Pinot Noir. Spiced cherries, raspberries, flowers, and subtle smoky, earthy notes all flow to a medium-bodied, balanced, elegant wine that's already drinking beautifully, yet is capable of keeping for 5-7 years.

Trim and distinctive, if on a modest scale, with an offering of tart dark berry, fresh earth and light oak. Has room to grow. Drink now through 2022.
