2020 Pursuit Pinot Noir Russian River Valley


2020 has been called a “vintage not to miss” in the Russian River Valley, and this bottle shows what can be done with serious fruit in an exceptional growing season. Medium bodied, the show opens with inviting cherry aromas and a touch of spice. On the palate, it’s a cohesive blend of marvelous fruit, with cherry, raspberry, and some dark fruit with pepper and earth on the juicy finish.

If you’ve been following the Bounty Hunter for a long time, by now you know that our “side hustle” is to “fruit-rustle.” We track down “great stuff” wherever it hides, but take particular pride in that which we call our own. For our Pursuit brand, we tap into our deep connections here in Wine Country and secure incredible juice from top houses. We start early in the process so that we can guide the finished product and ensure that it’s up to our exacting standards. While confidentiality agreements are involved, we assure you that the sources at our disposal are some of the absolute best in California (it’s good to have friends). You probably wouldn’t believe where this stuff was born, even if we could tell you.
