The Russian River Valley pinot noir is a thoughtful selection of barrels from Ten Acre’s Russian River Valley wines. These barrels are chosen as the most representative of this fog-blanketed valley in bouquet, flavor and texture. Individual barrels are selected from each lot of single-vineyard Russian River pinot noir to create a compelling and complex final blend that captures the best essence of pinot noir from the region.

The Russian River Valley has long been renowned for producing pinot noir fruit of the highest caliber, and this remarkable blend exemplifies the region’s lush, approachable style. It immediately greets the nose with ripe aromas of candied cherry and sweet molasses, while its silky texture and delightfully round mouthfeel entice the palate for another sip.
