Product Description

Situated in the southern alluvial plains of the Russian River Valley, Dairyman Vineyards proximity to the Pacific Ocean results in a cool morning fog and afternoon coastal breezes that elongate the growing season. This gives us small, concentrated and flavorful berries, producing bright cherry characteristics, brown spices, and a keen minerality overlaid with a rich, velvety mouth feel. Once an old dairy farm, the pastureland was planted to Dijon clone Pinot Noir in 2000, preserving the deep agricultural history of the property. 2013 Vintage Tasting Notes The color is a vibrant ruby red. Aromas of ripe cherry, fleshy black plum and dried rose petal are beautifully intermingled with subtle notes of smoke, thyme and anise. The palate opens with a delightful berries and cream character; bright raspberry, cranberry and cherry are nicely balanced by vanilla cream and a rich, rounded mouth-feel. It offers the perfect balance of sweet and savory with fig jam and candied blackberry notes, complemented by cedar, cocoa powder and dark spices. The overall impression is one of balanced structure, bright acidity and silky tannins with a long, lingering finish.
