Russian River Reserve Pinot Noir Bottle

Russian River Reserve
Pinot Noir

Our Russian River Reserve Pinot Noir is a best-barrel selection from the Winside Vineyard, planted in 1997. We have developed an intimate knowledge of the blocks over the past 20 years, but we have found that several of the blocks are close enough in pedigree that the ultimate quality in a given vintage comes down to the vagaries of the growing conditions and fermentations that year. For this reason, when it comes time to select the blend for the Russian River Reserve, we keep an open mind, and allow the wine in barrel to dictate the final blend.
