The well-made 2003 Pinot Noir Russian River is primarily estate fruit (estate vineyards now comprise 34 acres). It is a medium-bodied effort revealing notes of raspberries, cherries, dried herbs, earth, and spice. Enjoy this elegant 2003 during its first 5-6 years of life.

This has matured nicely and is at its peak. Ripe, red berry fruit. Floral and rose petal notes with flavors of baking spices. Medium-bodied with finely grained tannins fully integrated. Flavors carry through on a very pleasant finish.
