Vineyard description:

Situated on a gentle southeast facing slope that has been owned by Helen & Charles Bacigalupi since 1948.This is a benchmark vineyard in Sonoma County and the Russian River producing some of the best Pinot Noir in California. 

Wine making Info:

   14 day maceration. Daily pumping over during 5 day cold soak, then punch downs twice daily through fermentation.  Partial press blended back into free-run juice. Full malolactic fermentation.  Gravity pumped into a combination of 20% new Dargaud & Jaegle and 80% used barrels from D&J and Seguin Moreau.  

Wine Description:  

A warm ripe vintage has yielded a wine of cranberry red color and truly heady aromatics.  Lots of red rose and sour Morello cherry notes in the nose.  The mouth feeling is light and lithe with light acidity and medium tannins for a Pinot. Expect more cherry flavor and perhaps a hint of the loamy earthy flavor reminiscent of those alluvial river soils from this vineyard on the river. 

Food Pairing: 

Morels and other wild mushrooms risotto., Grilled lobster, Grilled asparagus and spring vegetables and creamy goat cheese
