2014 August Briggs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
 
Since this is our 20th bottling of Pinot Noir from the great Russian River Valley this wine needs no introduction! We believe that the quality of wine we produce is only as good as the fruit we start with and the fruit for our 2014 vintage comes from the Gunsalas Vineyard in the very cool Green Valley of the Russian River Valley AVA and the Rockin’ B vineyard in eastern Santa Rosa. This is quintessential Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and shows off its true Pinot character.

Deep ruby core, aroma of red ripe cherries, forest floor, and hints of vanilla from the oak. Full bodied on the palate with balanced acidity, heaps of red and black raspberry flavors, fresh thyme, dried spices and elegant woody notes on the long finish. Soft and supple, this is a wine that will please all serious Pinot Noir lovers and will complement a variety of dishes.

August Briggs use organic practices when producing their wines.
