The vineyard is in Sebastopol, in the south of the Russian River Valley. Acidity in this wine is very high, almost prickly, while the fruit tends toward cola, rhubarb, just-ripe cherries, rosehip tea and beef bouillion. It seems like the grapes were picked fairly early to yield a more structured Pinot. Doesn't seem like an ager, but could surprise. The finish is succulent.
