Pinot Noir

RUSSIAN RIVERsonoma county


ALLOCATION LIST: $49.50

TASTING NOTES

Gorgeous, powerful Pinot from the heart of the Russian River, the 2020 is on par with some of our earliest vintages not only in terms of opulence but sheer deliciousness. This is Stiling at its most sumptuous, mouth-filling and pleasure-inducing.

18 consecutive vintages have taught us so much about this special site, so this year we felt comfortable letting the fruit hit peak ripeness and harnessing every bit of potential just shy of going over the top, so it still retains excellent freshness and vitality.

Absolutely supercharged with up-front, exotic cassis, black cherry, cola and plum flavors knitted together in a creamy, velvety texture – all the aromas and flavors that we love in Russian River Pinot are fully on display. In the cellar, this glorious juice easily integrated the new French oak in which it rested.

Rather stunning now, all this depth should provide it with a long life ahead so don’t be afraid to sock some away for further glory.
