Lot 271 is sourced from vineyards grown in sites indicative of the appellation's best attributes for growing Pinot Noir - sandy loam soils within reach of the maritime influences of the Pacific Ocean. This wine is a classic representation of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir of the 2009 vintage. A long cool period during fruit ripening allowed delicate fruit flavors and aromas to develop with grace and elegance. This wine is seamlessly integrated with pitch perfect balance and is just a great value all the way around.
