2016 Bacigalupi Pinot Noir
Bacigalupi Vineyard, Russian River
After the ultra-low yields from the 2015 vintage, 2016 was a breath of fresh air with a bountiful and beautiful crop from the Bacigalupi Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. As with previous years, this vintage was fermented without the addition of commercial yeasts, allowing the wine to naturally reveal what is so special about this vineyard. The inviting aromas of cherry pie, black plums, and dried rose immediately please the senses. On the palate, it accentuates a core of dark fruit and cherry cola blended seamlessly with a soft acidity making this wine imminently drinkable. The smooth and sweet flavors linger extending the pleasure of each sip. This versatile wine is perfect for a gathering of friends whether seated at a formal dinner or around a campfire.
