2016 "Cooper Block" Pinot Noir

This sophisticated and silky textured Pinot Noir offers alluring layers of rhubarb, red plum and allspice, along with more savory notes of mushroom and cracked pepper. Both complex and compelling, this is an elegant and thought-provoking expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.

To enhance its natural complexity and rustic charm, this wine was fermented almost entirely as whole clusters. Punch downs were done infrequently, and were done gently by hand. A basket press was used and the free run wine was drained into one- and two-year-old French oak barrels and puncheons, and aged for 15 months.

This wine is made from a combination of clone 115 and Pommard grapes. The tiny-berried clone 115 contributes intense fruit notes to the wine, while the Pommard adds structure and minerality.

Wine Profile
Vineyards
With abundant winter rainfall, and a warm February, the 2016 growing season had an early budbreak. The early start to the season was followed by a warm summer without any significant heat events, and an ideally timed cooldown in August. The result was a robust crop of exceptional quality.
