Tasting Notes

The beautiful 2013 vintage, combined with Silver Eagle Vineyard’s ideal position above the Russian River Valley’s fog line, resulted in another vintage that stays true to Pinot Noir while bring out an earthy texture to the silky wine. Aromas begin with plum, blackberry and bramble along with wild morel mushrooms, peat and vanilla. A smooth and rich palate of mossy earth and mushroom leads to a finish of cinnamon, clove and star anise. This Pinot Noir continues to show great age-ability for years to come with its silky cocoa tannins and rich dark fruit.
