2016 RR Pinot Noir
Nothing terrifies a grape grower more than an unusually warm spring. With bud break a full 2-4 weeks earlier than average, our nails were well trimmed that season. Our worries were for naught, however, as the sun-soaked mornings and cool, gentle nights held steady until the fruit had set. Small berries and low crop levels caused many a smile when tasting the press lot from this vintage. Bottle evolution was slow, and steady. We find ourselves tempted to check back with this wine more often than necessary, just to experience the next set of beautiful flavors in motion. This wine is quickly positioning itself as one of our all-time favorites.
