2018 Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Exceptionally rich and concentrated aromas of black cherry, strawberry compote, and raspberry puree introduce this decadent wine from the Toboni vineyard. Set against a backdrop of violets and rose petals, the intense fruit forward profile is balanced by elements of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Full and round upon entry, the mouthfeel is texturally generous, with hints of cedar and sweet vanilla making a lasting impression upon the palate.
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 Toboni’s 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.
