Russian River Pinot Noir 2004
WINEMAKERS TASTING NOTES AND COMMENTS
This wine comes from one of the premium vineyards in the Russian River Valley located between Sebastopol and Forestville on gently sloping hills. The 2004 growing season started and ended early. After an early bud break and a cool summer, a longer than usual 10 days heat spike by the end of
August accelerated the early-ripening variety Pinot Noir. The 2004 was primarily grown on our favorite G-Block in the sandy Goldridge soil. The wine displays its typical Russian River attributes such as cola, rhubarb, macerated cherries and oriental spices while its fine grain tannins and structure reveal an ageing potential for the next 4 to 6 years.
