NEW RELEASES: 2019 JENKINS VINEYARD PINOT NOIR, 2019 RITCHIE VINEYARD HORSESHOE BLOCK CHARDONNAY
We are so grateful to work with the legendary grower Bob Jenkins. His deep understanding of this land and decades of carefully cultivated farming techniques create impressive Pinot Noirs that exude all of the iconic characteristics of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir: Rainier cherries and cacao, with secondary aromatics of dried roses. As Bob would tell you though, the secret lies in the soil. Jenkins Vineyard is rich in Goldridge soil—three to five million years ago this site was an inland sea that then emptied into the Pacific Ocean. What’s left today is a beautiful fine and sandy soil that is perfect for high-quality grape growing. The 2019 Jenkins Vineyard Pinot Noir is an excellent example of this striking terroir and always charms us with its ethereal aromas and gorgeous mouthfeel. It’s an experience in itself from this truly magical place.
The 2019 Ritchie Vineyard Horseshoe Block Chardonnay is made from a block selection of the iconic old-vine Wente Clone plantings of Ritchie Vineyard and merges lively energy with full body, ripe lemon, and underscores of red apple, cream and minerality. This wine is set up for long-term aging, while also being approachable now.
