Pinot Noir, Lucky Well Vineyard, Russian River Valley, 2016
Lucky Well Vineyard is located near the town of Occidental in the southern reaches of the Russian River drainage. Considered by some to be the premier area for Pinot Noir in the area, the vineyard lies on the back side of the coast ridge giving it a sweet spot of just enough exposure to Pacific breezes. From 100% Pommard clone. High tone cherry, plum and pomegranate fruits pervade the nose. Notes of graphite, white pepper, and forest floor support the fruit. In the background toasty accents of cinnamon and nutmeg. Full in the mouth with earth tones and more structure than some previous vintages. Robust with lengthy finish, the wine will continue to benefit from further time in bottle. 223 cases produced. Available to Wine Club Members Only.
