Russian River Vineyards Library Collection

We are very proud to announce the first release of wines from the Russian River Vineyards Library Collection.  These are our most age-worthy, rare, and collectible wines, withheld from sale until they have been aged sufficiently to be at their peak of structure and balance.

When you purchase from our library collection, you can be assured that you are enjoying our wines at the pinnacle of their quality.

"Older wines are an acquired taste.  They are now pretty rare because the industry has taught consumers to drink young wine.  These wines were meant to age. "

 

- Anthony Austin

Please note that we ship out of the tasting room Monday through Wednesday.

From the Balistreri Estate Vineyard, where our Winemaker's love affair with his craft began in his teenage years, comes this rich & complex Pinot Noir. Presenting dark, ripe fruit on the nose with subtle herbal notes, your first sip of this wine will convey its complexity. An overtone of smokiness accompanies the strong dark cherry and blackberry flavors to coat your palate, followed by hints of tea and spice. The tannin structure and exquisite acid balance of this wine gives it fantastic aging potential, so enjoy it right away or age for up to 10 years.

This wine is a part of our Library Collection wines, which are a select group of our most age-worthy & rare wines. This Pinot Noir is from the second oldest remaining vintage produced from our Legacy Estate Pinot Noir Vineyard, which was planted in the late 90's and inherited by us in 2008. It was removed in 2017, so 2016 was the final vintage from this vineyard. The 2016 vintage showed a return to normal yields in Sonoma compared to 2015, and was generally a good year.

This wine is a part of our Library Collection of wines, which are a select group of our most age-worthy & rare wines. Emma’s Vineyard lies just 11 miles from the Pacific Ocean on a West-facing hillside. This makes for a beautifully elegant wine, with a bright acidity and rich fruit. It also possesses a delightful minerality, which balances out the acidity.

One of Gio’s favorite vineyards, Emma’s is one he drives by on the way to his daughter’s school. He took over farming the vineyard in 2019. Planted in 1998 to Dijon clones in prized Goldridge soils, it faces west and is organically farmed. For this vintage, he chose all clone 667, from the top of the hill, overlooking an apple orchard.
