2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Library Selection)

Pinot Noir is the most elegant wine produced in California and Russian River Valley is the superior appellation for Pinot Noir production. Exceptional French clones were planted on rolling hills along the Russian River, where the sun kisses the grapes each morning, and the thick oceanic fog hugs them each night.
