2018 Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Exceptionally fresh and vibrant, this Hallberg Vineyard Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of Russian River Valley fruit. Baskets of just picked black cherries adorned with garlands of roses and violets sweep you away to warm summer days in the valley. Farmer’s market strawberry preserves and cinnamon scones beckon for a longer walk. Mounds of winter citrus arranged upon a platter of wet slate lend zestiness to the palate that is framed with an essence of sweet cedar, nutmeg, and cloves.
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.
