2017 Vintage:  261 Barrels

TASTING NOTES: RSV’s Pinot Noir from the 2017 vintage has an infectious bounce to its step. Bright aromas and flavors of ripe, red berry and plum set the stage of deliciousness alongside notes of lavender, flowering sage, blood orange and intoxicating spicy hints of cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla bean. For all of the wine’s playful juiciness and voluptuousness, the finish takes a classic, serious tone of depth and complexity. The polished fully-ripe tannins are youthfully firm, lending a backbone for a lengthy, mouthwatering finish that suggests this wine to be a superlative dinner companion.

WINEGROWING NOTES: The vintage of 2017 was best summarized by “expect the unexpected”...a wisdom learned from decades of farming. The most year to date rainfall on record occurred by February 22nd with 28 inches, followed by another 1 to 3 inches of rain in April. Then a blistering, week-long heat wave towards the end of August and into September accelerated ripening. Intentional low yeilds and organic regenerative farming methods allowed the fruit to achieve full physiological ripeness and night harvest helped to maintain the natural acidity. The entire crop was harvested by September 9th. Roughly one month later, climate change induced wildfires rampaged through Napa and Sonoma, putting an end to RSV’s harvest. The good news: none of RSV’s Pinot Noir was impacted by the fires.

ABV: 13.7%
