A spectacular blend of red fruit aromas along with notes of cherry, strawberry compote, and hints of earthy gaminess add intricacy and intrigue to our inaugural Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir. On the palate, the wine begins with delectable red fruits followed by silky, layered tannins; elegant oak lengthens the palate while simultaneously adding spice and warmth to the finish.
The steeply sloped Bucher Vineyard in Russian River Valley grows two heritage clones we selected to produce this enchanting single-vineyard Pinot Noir. Located off of Westside Road in the Middle Reach area of Russian River Valley, Bucher Vineyard Pinot Noir is planted upon well-drained Arbuckle gravely loam soil using clones 777, 115, 37 and Pommard 4. This wine’s dark fruit aromas and earthy flavors are typical expressions of the clones, which benefit from warm days and cool, breezy evenings along the nearby banks of the Russian River.
