Virginia Dear Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is an inviting Pinot Noir that is uniquely expressive of its vintage, variety, and locale in the ideal microclimate of the Russian River Valley. 2018 is an excellent year for Pinot Noir. The seasonal influence on this year's fruit produced wines with precision, weight, and fragrance. Dark fruits dominate this vintage, with nuances of blackberries and spiced plums. A more exaggerated floral edge is perceived with hints of rose petals and lavender mingling with earthy notes of forest floor and tea leaves. An opulent body and expression, smooth tannins, and a long finish make it all the more appealing.
