RRV Red Wines
A fun, accessible Pinot Noir with strong notes of fruit & spice.
This wine is a part of our Library Collection, which is comprised of a select group of our most age-worthy & rare wines. There are just three vintages (2014, 2015, 2016) of our Legacy Estate Merlot remaining in any significant quantity.
Grown in the highly favored middle reach of the Russian River Valley, this wine exudes a beautiful richness balanced perfectly by its soft tannins. Pour yourself a glass and savor the flavors of dark berries, vanilla, pepper and just a hint of tobacco on the palate. This juicy Merlot begs for something of rich proportion.
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 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 and was removed in 2017, so only a precious few cases of these wines remain to be enjoyed.
The vineyard is located in a particularly cool region, less than 20 miles from the coast. This cool climate, combined with the sun exposure provided by a Southern-facing hillside vineyard, makes for a low-yielding, slow ripening environment which is perfect for Pinot Noir. The balance of fruit and minerality show beautifully in this easy-drinking, crowd pleaser!
