Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
2014
2013

The Russian River Valley Estate Vineyard has 16 planted acres on coveted Goldridge soils that are sandy with moderate water holding capacity and generally low fertility – perfect for growing Pinot Noir. The Estate was planted with “David Bruce Clone,” which has become a common term among Pinot Noir winegrowers for selections taken from David Bruce's plantings in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It is an old field selection consisting of Mt. Eden Clone (from Martin Ray’s vineyard), Martini Clone, Wädenswil & Pommard, and is one of the original Pinot Noir selections grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.
