“This Earth Mother is assertive, but black cherry, mocha, and Red Delicious apple impart sweetness while gentling her soul. Waves of sandalwood and tarry notes linger on the savory finish.”

Tasting Notes

Fragrant aromatics fill the glass with dark tones of red fruit, violets and subtle earth notes. The palate, bathed with vibrant acidity, reveals bright black raspberry, blackberry, plum, and hints of vanilla woven with traces of fine-grained oak. This blend of five Pinot clones from five of our vineyard blocks delivers layers of complexity, supple tannins, and a long, lingering finish—a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
