2017 Pinot Noir Rosé, "Woods Vineyard", Russian River Valley
Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir rosés emulate the finest classically-styled rosés from the south of France. Notes of Bing cherry, strawberry and a hint of watermelon leap from the glass and dance along the palate. The elegant fruit flavors of this Pinot Noir rosé are framed by a dry, crisp acidity. Pleasant and refreshing with a pale pink hue, this wine has medium-bodied length and a crisp finish. It is absolutely perfect for year-round enjoyment.
About the Vineyard:
The fruit for this wine is sourced from a tiny vineyard in the southern part of the Russian River Valley. Planted to clone 777, it thrives in the sandy loam soils. Fog rolls up to the vineyard most mornings and nights, which has a perfect cooling affect that Pinot Noir loves. Owned by the Wood Family, it is meticulously farmed and cared for by them year round.
