Russian River Valley Releases

The beating heart of Pinot Noir is found here, close to the marine influences of the Pacific Ocean, which bring fog into the Valley, down the Russian River, and through the Petaluma Wind Gap in the coastal hills prominent in western Sonoma. Day versus night is a wonder, with temperatures that drop as much as 40 degrees, extending the growing season so that fruit retains crisp acidity but also develops layers of flavor and after all, it’s flavor we’re after.

Most everyone knows that Jim Pratt is a grower we truly admire, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that when the opportunity for a little Chardonnay from Vine Hill presented itself, it was a run, don’t walk situation. On the edge of Green Valley near Forestville in the Laguna Hills region, legendary vintner neighbors all around this vineyard are just one clue that something very special is happening here.
