2015 Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
395 Cases Produced
Once again in 2015 we found ourselves celebrating yet another great vintage, back-to-back with its peers in ‘12, ‘13, and ‘14. Although the season started a couple weeks earlier than expected, steady warm temperatures throughout the summer provided optimal ripening for what will become known as a scarce but valuable vintage.
The Bacigalupi Vineyard rests in the warmest section of the Russian River Valley AVA. Located off of Westside Road, a short drive west of Healdsburg, this vineyard produces a fuller, broader style of Pinot Noir. The nose is complete and filled with allspice, rose water, black cherries, and sweet cola. The abundant, aromatic fruit in this wine is profound, plush and exotic. The palate is filled with black fruit with a full, round mouth-feel, and tongue-curling acidity.
