Aromas of cherry preserves, rose petal and moist earth. Delicate tannins. Whole cluster maceration, spends 7 months in neutral barrels. Porter-Bass sources the grapes from the Forchini Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. You find a better value California Pinot Noir at this level of craftsmanship, and I'll streak down Livingston, in February. Biodynamic and organic.
