taste + style
“Bing cherry topped with cola and cedar cigar box notes frame the aromas, followed by a silky entry with toasty vanilla, dried cherries and strawberry. Full, almost plush, with lingering tannins and a long, delightful finish. With a touch of personality from each of the vineyards, it’s a very special wine indeed.” –Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking
Vineyard + Production
Small Block wines honor the winemaker’s art, exploring vineyards in depth, examining unusual varietals and artisan winemaking techniques. This artful blend highlights three exceptional Green Valley vineyards that are the cool centerpiece of the famed Russian River Valley. Rolling benchlands and rich Gold Ridge soils of the Green Valley yield this artful Pinot Noir with signature strawberry and bing cherry aromas and flavors.
Food + Wine Pairing
This wine is anything but delicate and has flavors to complement many cuisines;. mushroom or beet risotto, CK lamb or Sonoma duck breast, roast tenderloin or salmon and pork loins sauced with fruits. On the cheese board, I would recommend Brie, Camembert, Gruyere, Goat and Sheep cheeses. –Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
