2021 Stiling Vineyard Pinot Noir

2021 Stiling Vineyard

Pinot Noir

RUSSIAN RIVERsonoma county


SPECIAL: $44.00
RETAIL: $55.00


TASTING NOTES

Nineteen consecutive vintages on, Stiling once again brings its “A Game” to our Pinot lineup with sheer force of personality and immediate deliciousness.

Generously packed with ripe dark cherry, strawberry, cola and baking spices, the palate mirrors the gorgeous aromas, unfolding with a silky rush of creamy, mouth-filling Pinot fruit. No doubt, this is a dramatic style of Russian River Pinot Noir, yet you’ll find it to be elegantly braced with a persistent, well-defined structure and natural grace.

For this vintage, we employed a small percentage of whole cluster in our micro fermentations of each separate vineyard block in open-top tanks with both punch downs and pump overs to summon color, character, and fine tannins. Raised in 75% new French oak puncheon for 20 months, these oversized barrels evolve the wine gently with a lower overall oak impact.

Of all the legacy Pinots we make, Stiling always sells out the fastest. Every vintage might be a little different, but the irresistible character of this special vineyard always shines through.
