Welcome to Bar Back!
Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Assembled from selected blocks of our estate vineyards this blend is a collection of heirloom clones of Pinot Noir like Calera, Swan, Pommard, Mt. Eden, and Chalone as well as newer French selections like Dijon 828 and 943.
Aromas are clearly dominated by bright red fruit tones of Bing cherry and red raspberry, while black fruits dominate on the palette. The bright aromas expand and give way to sour cherry and candied orange peel. On the palate the wine’s juicy mouthfeel is supported by centered acidity building with intensity through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. Tannins are beautifully proportioned and provide backbone to the wine’s sweet middle and delicate earthy finish.
