2018 "Fight Club" Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley
This wine is just itchin' for a fight...for your attention that is. 2018 saw perfect timing in regard to flowering with some shatter in the clusters due to cool temps in June. This created extraordinary flavor development in the vine as the fruit gained elbow room on the vine, thus allowing better airflow and physiological ripeness. A battle was won and to the victor go the spoils. In this case, perfumed braised strawberry followed by flavors of muddled black cherry and toasted spice. Hibiscus tea and orange blossom appear enthusiastically during the second wave. A true force to be reckoned with
