Sojourn Cellars 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
The 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of five vineyards and several clones. This wine showcases classic Russian River Valley characteristics: bright acidity, fresh fruit flavors, and earthy notes and silky tannins alongside complexity and nuance.
The Russian River Valley grapes were harvested and vinified in small lots to retain the subtle differences between each of the vineyards. After a four-day cold soak, native yeasts initiated the fermentations, which lasted 10-14 days. After a gentle pressing, the wines were barreled down into high-quality Burgundy cooperage for 11 months of ageing.
