2015 “the love” Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Every element of Kirk Venge's winemaking genius is on display here in our 4th release of "the love". He has crafted an absolute stunner!
You are immediately consumed with the aromatics of this wine. The vibrant nose is a symphonic array of dried currant, raspberry, warm ripe strawberry and finely crushed herbs that bursts out of the glass. This juice delivers a much sought after tension, as everything is brilliantly harmonized around a balanced center of elegant acidity. Vibrant flavors of plum confection, strawberry jam and tart cherry delight the palate producing an elegant mouthfeel with an extended finish. This is an epic textbook Russian River Pinot Noir. Enjoy now and for 15 - 20 years more when cellared correctly.
