Winemaker Notes:

This beautiful lilting, dynamic wine is the essence of coastal Russian River Pinot Noir. The wine’s aromas and flavors encompass the entire spectrum of red and black fruits, savory spices, and earthy undertones: black cherry, wild berries, dried thyme, orange zest, sandalwood, and black tea. The palate is supple, broad, and lively, flowing seamlessly to a crunchy vibrant finish with rising red-mineral lift and silky structure. Drink from Summer 2021 to 2030.

A thick, rich opening of wild strawberry preserve and raspberry tea leads the way to a midpalate of grippy texture and lifted acidity in this impressive wine. Savory seasonings of black tea, forest floor and cardamom echo and add to the wine’s varietal complexity.

Fine-grained, powerful and well-spiced, with floral accents to the raspberry and cherry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. The juicy finish lingers with rich minerality and hints of white pepper. Drink now through 2025. 3,693 cases made.

The 2019 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is nervy, taut and full of energy. Crushed flowers, red berry fruit and chalky accents convey vibrancy in this mid-weight, focused Pinot. Winemaker Andy Smit blends a number of top Russian River sites for his Wester Reach Pinot. In 2019, the blend is 26% DuMOL Estate, 22% Flax Estate, 20% Dutton-Widdoes, 16% Dutton-Upper Road and 16% Occidental Road.
