2016 Bacigalupi Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
395 Cases Produced
The 2016 vintage was an ideal growing season by all accounts for Burgundian varietals. The vineyard is located in the warmest section of the Russian River Valley AVA, on Westside Road, and that is reflected in the finished wine.
A full bodied, full flavored wine that is pleasing to the eye, the nose is complete with sweet earth, ripe blackberry, and mocha coffee notes—the abundant, aromatic fruit in this wine is profound, plush and exotic. The palate is filled with silky and savory flavors of sweet currants, black cherry, and plum. Tongue curling acidity and savory satisfaction. The oak on the palate is focused, as is the tannin texture, which produces a fine glide over several minutes of distance in the finish.
