J Vineyards Pinot Noir
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Thoughtfully crafted from up to 100 individual small lots, our 2020 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a tunning vintage that captures the classic characteristics of this renowned region. Floral aromas of rose petal and violet are complemented on the velvet-smooth palate by generous fruit notes of cherry, ripe strawberry and baked plum. Deeper hints of gingerbread, forest floor, soft leather and slate add intriguing complexity to this appealing, beautifully balanced Pinot Noir.
ABOUT THE WINERY
AS A TRADITIONAL-METHOD SPARKLING PRODUCER, J VINEYARDS INCORPORATES MANY OLD-WORLD TECHNIQUES AND TRADITIONS INTO ITS WINEMAKING.
At J Vineyards, all sparkling fruit is hand-harvested at night in cool temperatures to ensure the grapes remain in peak condition. An ultra-gentle pressing in our Coquard presses (rarely found in the U.S., and one of very few in California) prevents astringency or bitterness, and ensures a clean, refreshing mouthfeel. And the same high level of attention and care is poured into each still varietal as well, creating a portfolio that is consistently lauded and always enjoyed.
