2015 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
From the moment you see the vibrant ruby hue of this Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir, you are enveloped in the essence of plump and juicy berries. Its tantalizing bouquet of amarena cherries and raspberry gelée is underscored by beautiful dried rose petals, spicy cloves and savory black olives. The palate unbuttons to reveal flavors of wild berry trifle, ripe raspberries and minty eucalyptus. Its harmonious blend of power and finesse is supported by a framework of tannin and acidity that creates a wine perfect for both the dinner table and the cellar.
Vineyard Notes
Named for its previous owners, the 100-acre Hallberg Vineyard is today owned and managed by wine industry veterans including vineyard manager Kirk Lokka. Nestled in the Green Valley sub-appellation, the site enjoys refreshing daytime breezes and cool nighttime temperatures. The strong marine influence means less severe daily temperature shifts so the vines never completely shut down, producing fruit with deep, dark color, great structure, silky tannins, darker fruit flavors and earthy characteristics. This blend is a composition of many of the best blocks on this cool, foggy vineyard site, which include clones 667, 777, 828, Pommard and a mysterious “suitcase” selection.
