Cherry Pie Rodgers Creek Pinot Noir 2015
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
As with the prior vintage, in the 2015 Rodgers Creek Pinot Noir pretty violet floral aromas appear, along with ripe Bing and Rainier cherry and delicate oak spice notes. On the palate, the wine provides layers of flavors of red ripe juicy cherries, tart cranberries and licorice with a subtle cedar note. The complexity found in the palate is further elevated by the integrated and lush tannins that round out the wine, resulting in a decadent long finish.
Brimming with ripe, rich blackberry and wild berry fruit that's zesty and marked by shades of black licorice and fresh earth. Ends with a long, fruity aftertaste and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022.
Please Note: The Vineyard is not responsible for wine that arrives damaged due to heat or cold.
Orin Swift 8 Years In The Desert Red 2017 750mlDark garnet with a lucid rim, the wine exhibits aromas of briar fruit, ripe blackberry and dark plum with a tinge of minerality and charred meat. Brawny on the entry, it has an equally big mid-palate with complex flavors of ripe brambly fruit, a touch of earth and notes of espresso bean. Still massive through to the finish with soft drying tannins, the unique varietal characteristics of the blend clearly reveal themselves over time.

Cherry Hill Estate Pinot Noir 2016 750mlRanked the #10 Red Wine in our Sept. 23, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event. Cherry Hill Winery produced its first vintage from our new winery in 2003. The Cherry Hill Winery Estate Pinot Noir is handcrafted from our Pommard clone which makes up 55% of our 90 acre estate vineyard. Our state of the art gravity feed winery provided us with the tools to carefully handcraft this most difficult grape into a light, delicate Pinot Noir. The fruit for this beautiful wine was hand picked from our best blocks where yields are restricted to two tons per acre. The grapes were de-stemmed and gravity fed to our small fermenters where each lot was carefully monitored. The wine aged in neutral French oak for one year and is a light delicate wine with beautiful color and texture. Like all things of beauty, this wine will improve with age, but it is a beauty now! Food and Serving Suggestions: Pinot Noir is known as the most food-friendly grape and Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs rank with the best in the world. We recommend entrees of fish, beef, wild game, and pastas.
