From terrific terroir comes a fascinating and delicious Pinot Noir with deep fruit intensity and mineral focus, perfectly reflective of the land at its origin. Jentoft Vineyard sits at the highest altitude and westernmost district in the Russian River Valley. Shallow, hillside soils give the wine its youthful energy, while the heavily forested site contributes a multitude of savory nuances and sweet herbal aromatics. Seamless, focused and direct, macerated cherries glide across the palate to a lilting, woodsy finish. This is something special.
Another Russian River cuvée, the 2019 Pinot Noir Jentoft Vineyard Ryan is a deeper ruby, translucent color and has a gorgeous array of black raspberry and cherry fruits supported by ample spice box, savory flowers, rose petals, and dried bouquet garni-like nuances. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and fleshy, with the more rounded, supple style of the vintage, it's ideal for enjoying over the coming 7-8 years, probably longer, but there's no need to delay gratification more than a year or two.
