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. The 2021 had a cold start and a warm finish with an early harvest due to warm August and September weather and a lighter crop. This resulted in an excellent vintage and good growing season with no lingering heat waves. Because of the growing season, wines have exceptional flavors, are intense with great color, fruit forward and ripe.
