2016 Joseph Jewell Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, CA
Luscious and inviting, with aromas of bing cherry, cola, and orange blossom, this deep ruby wine delights with flavors of bing cherry and plum. Soft tannins support a lush mouthfeel that will keep you coming back for more.
Winemaker Notes: The Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is always a fan favorite. When you look at the three single-vineyard Pinot Noirs we produce, they all bring something different to the table. The Bucher brings lush fruits and lots of earthy notes. The Starscape Vineyard brings the very easy drinking qualities of red fruits and soft tannins. Hallberg brings structure to the wine as well as darker fruits and Asian spices. When we create a barrel selection from these vineyards the result is a complete wine with several layers and flavor profiles. This is our best representation of the Russian River Valley.
