Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir aromas of ripe, juicy raspberries, blackberries and cherry reduction tempt the taste buds at first sniff, while underlying hints of tobacco and cedar box intrigue the olfactory senses further. Rich, ripe and jammy berry flavors are perfectly balanced by hints of dried herbs, simmered mushrooms and a surprising complement of dark chocolate on the finish. Bold, rich, powerful and mouth-coating are terms that describe this tasty, food-friendly wine. Big, coating tannins provide a firmness throughout, while an elixir of dark fruit and vibrant acidity create a delicious and persistent finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Toboni Oakwild Ranch vineyard is located in the Santa Rosa Plain, just south of the winery. Each morning, the vineyard is bathed in fog that rises off the river and cools the vines, while sunny, warm days and breezy afternoons tend to heighten the intensity and complexity of the fruit flavor. Planted in 2001 to clones 115, 667, 777 and Pommard, all on 101-14 rootstock, the Tobonis have painstakingly matched soils and climate with optimal rootstock and clonal selections every step of the way. The soil is clay loam with some mineral and gravel composites. With a winegrowing triple threat of cool fog, sunny afternoons and excellent farming practices, this vineyard produces gorgeous wines with intense, complex earthy and spicy aromas, along with refined, ripe cherry, plum, cranberry and cola flavors.
