Lot 581 2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Lot 581
2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

#1 of 2 super small-lot single vineyard Pinot Noir releases!
$22
A more open-knit wine than Lot 582, ripe with clove, raspberry and black cherry, haloed with rose petal. Soft and juicy on the palate, with rich fruit and compote notes in a long, fleshy finish. Will age nicely over the next 3-5 years.

As I’ve mentioned before, my favorite opportunity buys are shiners – bottles of wine that have no label on them. Some folks just happen to have a little extra in their cellars, and I’m more than happy to scoop them up when available!

Lot 581 is a single vineyard designate wine from a boutique winery in the heart of the Russian River Valley. This is a classically styled Pinot Noir on the richer side of the Pinot spectrum - 2013 was a fairly substantial vintage for power and finesse, and both are on display here. With three years bottle aging already done for you, the only cellaring needed is a week to let the wine recover from its journey and you're good to go! Usually only sold in the producing winery's tasting room for $48, available here for only $22! Only 150 cases available!
