James MacPhail's Notes
This is our homage to the legendary Russian River Valley AVA, crafted from a variety of vineyard sources throughout the region with the goal of highlighting the Russian River's iconic Pinot Noir style: fresh, luscious, bursting with red fruits, and laced with a hint of Russian River earthy notes. 2018 was an almost ideal growing season, and this wine reflects the incredible quality we saw in the vineyards that year.
