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. 2019 gave us a mild growing season and a delayed harvest, allowing us to truly bring out classic flavors like Bing cherry, orange zest, and a slight earthiness in a medium-bodied wine that hits all the right notes.
