2018 Root & Rubble Pinot Noir
2018 Pinot Noir
Deep bright-rimmed red. Lively, sharply focused red berry aromas show very good clarity and pick up hints of candied rose, white pepper and smoky minerals with air. Taut and sharply delineated, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that open up very slowly with air. In a bright, spice-driven style, finishing with firm cut and just a trace of silky tannins.
About This Wine
The 2018 vintage is sourced from the Barbieri Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Typically used for blending, clone 828 was selected for its thicker skins and strong tannin presence, letting the wine stand on its own without leaning on oak for support. The result is a round, lush, fruit-forward wine with hints of candied rose, white pepper and a subtle earthiness. The palate offers intense raspberry and spice, finishing with a trace of silky tannins
