Intricate and layered, our Northern Spy Vineyard Pinot Noir consistently gives us the most intoxicating perfume--think plums, violets and lavender--with cool, dark blue fruit flavors, and a beautifully lifted minerality on the finish.

Tasting Notes
The 2016 Northern Spy displays the hallmark aromas of Green Valley: intense floral perfume, bright Bing cherry and raspberry, and subtle earth and mineral notes. The wine opens with a burst of fresh crushed red fruit flavors followed by a wonderful juiciness that persists from start to finish. Incredibly silky tannins seem to glide across the palate, while a mouthwatering natural acidity provides a finish that is bright, elegant and absolutely refreshing.
Vineyard Notes
Northern Spy Vineyard’s 17.5 acres of double-Guyot-trained vines are rooted in the region’s famous Goldridge sandy loam soils, comprised of weathered sandstone and granite, with a fine, almost powder-like topsoil. Located in the Green Valley area of the Southwest corner of the Russian River Valley, this vineyard enjoys very cool nights and mornings. Fog typically covers the vineyard from 6:00pm until about 11:00am during the summer months. Daytime temperatures typically hover in the low-to-mid 80s, creating vines that have intensely concentrated, small berries. The cool temperatures and less direct sunlight lead to vines that are harvested up to one month later than the much warmer Amber Ridge Vineyard.
