 Our 2015 J Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is smooth and luscious, opening with notes of dark cherry, bramble and spice. On the palate, this Pinot Noir is expansive with flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and cola with a hint of toast. Round, soft tannins lead to a silky, lingering finish. 

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were sourced from cool areas throughout the Russian River Valley growing region. We hand-harvested whole grape clusters at 24.5 Brix, de-stemmed and gravity-fed them into small, three- to ten-ton open-top fermenters. Following a five-day cold soak, the must fermented for seven to ten days using Burgundy yeast and natural inoculums. The wine was drained to barrel to undergo malolactic fermentation in 100% French oak, approximately 30% of which was new. Each vineyard, block and clone was kept separate until blending in May.
