Tasting Notes: The Davis Family 2016 Russian River Pinot Noir is sourced from the estate Soul Patch, Starr Ridge and Dutton Ranch vineyards. Rich, balanced, and elegant, with beautiful red and dark fruit flavor, this blend is a perfect embodiment of all that the Russian River Valley has to offer in one deeply layered, complex wine.
Winemaking Notes: The fermentation was conducted using native yeast in small, temperature-controlled, open-top fermentors. Gentle punch downs were done over a 3-4 week fermentation after a 5-7 day cold soak. The Pinot was then pressed and transferred directly into barrel using gravity flow. The Pinot Noir was aged in French oak for 10 months; 1/3 of the barrels were new, 1/3 were one year old, and 1/3 were 2 years old. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
