2013 Trifecta Russian River Pinot Noir

The 2013 Trifecta Russian River Pinot Noir embodies the ripe and lush characteristics of a warm vintage in California. Rich dark fruit dominates the aromas with plum, boysenberry and bing cherry.  These aromas are layered with floral aromas of violet, spicy elements of cinnamon and dusty earthy notes.  On the palate the soft and round fruit tannins meld with the juicy red fruit flavors on the mid palate.  These flavors meld with the rich caramel flavors from the French oak that carry the long finish.
