“Our 2019 vintage of “Wester Reach” Pinot Noir is a multi-layered interpretation of this classic region where we live and farm. It includes some of the greatest sites in the appellation – vineyards that we have planted, farmed and harvested for over twenty years. Comprising three of the region’s unique sub-districts, the wine blends fruit from the valley itself with vineyards further west, stretching out to the coolest ‘reaches’ of the appellation’s high elevation coastal ridges.
“This is a beautiful lilting, dynamic wine – the essence of coastal Russian River Pinot Noir. The wine’s aromas and flavors encompass the entire spectrum of red and black fruits, savory spices and earthy undertones: black cherry, wild berries, dried thyme, orange zest, sandalwood and black tea. The palate is supple, broad and lively and flows seamlessly to a crunchy vibrant finish with rising red-mineral lift and silky structure. Drink from Summer 2021 to 2030.” Andy Smith, Winemaker-Partner
