Vaughn Duffy 2017 Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley AVA

This beauty is from the Russian River Valley, famous for extraordinary Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. The key here is tremendous fruit intensity, a necessity for all Burgundian varietals. The 2017 vintage experienced a temperature spike over the Labor Day weekend that influenced the richness and made the wines more fruit forward with higher alcoholic levels than normal. The Pinot Noir is full of black cherry and red plum flavors with toasted spice aromatics that also hint at a fruit and spice combo. Palate-wise, both strawberry and cranberry preserves are discernible along with a long finish. Unfined and unfiltered. Enjoy this Garagiste feature from Vaughn Duffy!
