2016 GREEN VALLEY OF THE RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY PINOT NOIR

Notes:

The growing season of 2015 has been described as "Early, Light and Exceptional." At Chenoweth Wines, we agree. In 2015 we saw a mild winter, which caused an early bud break, coupled with an unseasonably cold spring that contributed to smaller clusters. A quick and compact harvest had our winemakers working double-time to produce some of the finest wines we have seen in several vintages. Our 2015 embodies the exceptional flavors of its growing season, bold and intense red fruit flavors with some hints of spice and a beautiful finish for which Russian River Pinot Noir is known.
