2010 Wohler Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

2010 Wohler Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley

In 2010, we split our picks at Wohler, choosing to pick our clone 667 and 828 blocks fairly early at lower brix to preserve bright fruit characteristics and acidity, while picking our clone 115 block and our new Wadensville 2A block 20 days later for more concentrated dark fruit flavors and ripe, silky tannins. The resulting blend has many layers and offers up depth and concentration with a balanced structure. Wohler vineyard, at a young age, is already showing its potential to produce distinctive Pinot noir. This is a reflection of a combination of the renowned terroir and Goldridge loam soils, together with aggressive farming designed to strengthen the vines for subsequent vintages.
