Single-Vineyard Pinot Noir from Davis Bynum!

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir expresses itself differently depending on location, site specifics, and the nature of the vines themselves. Jane's Vineyard is in the golden triangle of the "Santa Rosa plain" region of the valley, just southwest of Windsor and centered on the intersection of Olivet and River roads. This small area tends to enjoy the very best of the iconic local climate; never too hot during the day, and consistently chilly at night. Jane's Vineyard shows superior vine balance thanks to its well-drained, shallow and inherently low vigor soils. Finally, I choose a selection of Pinot “clones” to enhance complexity, while keeping to the food friendly flavor profile that has always been a hallmark of Davis Bynum: a little lighter, without being lean; a little crisper, without being tart; a little more fruit driven, without being distracting; with a round, soft mouthfeel.

$26.99 brings home this lovely bottle!
