Rugged Elements Santa Nella Pinot Noir 2019

Rugged Elements Santa Nella Pinot Noir 2019

Elegant fruity notes of black cherry, raspberry and rhubarb are joined by subtle touches of spice and toasty oak. The palate is full-bodied with soft tannins, excellent acid balance, and a long lingering finish with raspberry, cardamom, and a subtle curry note.

Winemakers Notes

2019 started with massive spring rains all the way into May, which recharged the groundwater and produced happy and healthy vines. Ideal temperatures in the Russian River Valley that summer yielded slow ripening and intensely flavored grapes. Our Santa Nella Pinot Noir grapes were night-harvested September19. We destemmed grapes into stainless steel tanks and fermented for 14 days on the skins before sending the free run to oak barrels, where the wine aged 21 months.
