Wine Details & Tasting Notes

***Not available in all shipping regions

This is an absolutely fantastic Pinot Noir, quaffable and lovely but with a seriously complex soul. Its sees whole berry fermentation, 50% new French oak, and is sourced primarily from Hallberg Ranch with smaller pieces from the iconic Baciagalupi and Martinelli vineyards in the Russian River Valley. The remaining fruit is sourced from Sonoma-Carneros with a touch of Sonoma Coast.

Normally retailing for $25/bottle (which, on its own, is actually a hell of a deal for these barrels and vineyards), it's yours today for just $119/case, Shipping Included! Yes, less than $10/bottle, delivered!

Nicely colored in the glass, pale purple with an electric rim. Beautiful bouquet of rose petals and spicy red hots over black cherry and a kiss of tobacco and damp earth. Super-fresh. On the palate, black fruits, Bing cherries, and black raspberry ride a beam of red clay-flecked minerality complexed with cedar box. The wine is soft and smooth with an elegant core and clean-yet-persistent finish that echoes the aforementioned notes for a good 30-seconds+.

This wine will age beautifully for another 7-10 years, if not more. I just tasted the 2003 Sonoma Cuvee Pinot Noir (under cork) and it was remarkably complex and still fresh as a daisy.
