"The pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Heintz Vineyard has a slowly evolving nose of Bing cherries, crunchy cranberries and blackberries with accents of potpourri, dried violets, dusty earth and herbs. Soft, silky and medium-bodied with fine, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, it has wonderful perfumed fruit flavors and a long, nuanced finish. 217 cases produced." (WA)

Winery Notes:
The vineyards in this region tend to deliver bright red fruit but this vintage reflects a nice mix of dark and red. There’s the distinctive Russian River Valley cherry cola in the nose followed by baking spices, anise, and allspice. Flavors abound including cherry pie, red raspberry, currant with a bit of green, blueberry, and melting milk chocolate. Sipping it transports you to the sensory feeling of walking in the woods – the smells of coastal earthiness and forest floor. This Pinot Noir has an unctuous mid-palate with a lingering aftertaste. Delicious today and will hold well through 2024-2026.
