This luxurious Pinot Noir captures the generous essence of the Russian River Valley with aromas of blackberry, raspberry and currant. On the palate it is lush and velvety, with flowing flavors of warm berry pie and sweet holiday spices gliding to a long, complex finish.
2019 was an amazing year for cool-climate varietals. With plentiful spring rains, the growing season got off to a great start, especially for our dry-farmed Running Creek Estate. The season continued to provide ideal conditions, with cooler spring weather, moderate summer temperatures, and warm days in the runup to harvest. We picked each vineyard exactly when we wished, resulting in bright, crisp Chardonnays with pure, elegantly delineated flavors and vibrant and concentrated Pinot Noirs with silky, refined tannins.
