WSI94 Wow-wonderful Pinot Noir from a historic vineyard. Vibrant red berries on the nose, sea shells and iodine. The palate is complex, with vibrant, expressive red fruit, rich dense texture, and a delicious savory finish. Excellent!

This Pinot Noir is from the historic Bacigalupi Vineyard on Westside Road in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The 2018 Pinot Noir is rich and forward. It has an expressive nose and generous palate of classic dark red fruits, cherry pie, and a touch of cola. The silky texture from the polished tannins leads to an expansive mid-palate and a lingering bright finish. 100% French oak, 40% new.
