This very approachable wine offers mouth-filling, yet soft, tannins. Ripe fruit flavors are complemented by bright acidity and a gentle oak mid-palate.

Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - 2017
Our Ron Rubin Pinot Noir expresses the character of Russian River Valley terroir, while reflecting the versatility of the region. Russian River Valleys morning fog, and cool coastal breezes from the Pacific Ocean, create ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir. This allows for a 15-20% longer hang-time than that of neighboring areas, allowing our Pinot Noir to retain bright acidity and develop full-flavor maturity. Our 2016 Pinot Noir was hand-picked, sorted, destemmed and put into open top fermenters, and was cold-soaked for 5-days. It was then fermented, pressed, and stored in French oak barrels. In addition to growing these grapes on our Estate, we acquired fruit from a few local, family vineyards. Clones: 115, 667, 777, 828, 113, and Pommard.

Cool morning fog sweeps from the Pacific Ocean over the Russian River Valley nearly every day. This unique climate produces diurnal swings ranging from 35 to 40 degrees F, allowing the delicate Chardonnay grapes to ripen longer on the vine. As a result, Russian River Valley Chardonnay typically sees an increase in flavor and complexity.

The Chardonnay grapes for this wine were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed to retain optimum flavor and integrity of the fruit. Sourcing from our favorite vineyards allows us to showcase the bright fruit flavors while allowing for a great acidic structure.

Signaling an end to the multi-year drought, 2016 began with a very mild winter. We saw ample rainfall which charged up the soil with good moisture reserves. Temperatures were moderate, with only a few nights in early spring which required vigilance against the threat of frost. The gentle conditions continued through bloom, and resulted in good fruit set and balanced crop levels a welcome return to normal after the tiny harvest in 2015! The grapes were treated to perfect growing and ripening conditions throughout the season. With only a few modest heat spikes in June and July that topped out in the mid-90s, and a relatively cool August, our grapes were able to hang for an extended period, to develop concentrated flavors.

2018 was a remarkable vintage for Russian River Valley Chardonnay! A fairly dry winter gave way to a wet early spring, delaying bud-break but providing ample moisture for the grapevines. Consistent and mild conditions during bloom and throughout the early growing season, along with a cooler than normal August, led to slow ripening and a late harvest date. This long hang-time allowed for full flavor development while retaining the bright acidity that is a hallmark of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Harvested in late September and early October, the grapes were gently pressed before fermentation in oak barrels.
