For nearly 30 years, Rütz Cellars has been cultivating its core bottlings from the most preeminent appellation for Pinot Noir: the Russian River Valley. This appellation now has a world wide reputation for a terroir that balances all of the elements of the sun, air and soil. Rütz’s Proprietors Reserve Pinot Noir hails from vineyards within the cooler region of the Valley and the result is a classic, varietally correct, Old World style Pinot Noir. Ruby in color, the Pinot Noir offers a range of aromas, from just-ripe cherries and blackberries to dried herbs like basil, ground cinnamon and white pepper. The wine is soft and supple with balanced flavors of porcini mushrooms, green peppers and just a kiss of oak that lingers on the complex finish.
