From the Winery: "After 29 vintages with his previous company Patz & Hall, he moved on in May of 2017. A perfect moment to quit or take some time off. That’s not really his style. Mr. Patz hit the ground running on May 1 to implement a new wine brand. “I had some things I still wanted to do in the wine business. I love sharing my wines. This time being free to rethink and take my wines in a slightly different direction was exciting and refreshing!
PINOT NOIR with a lot of Pinot “perfume” as well as interesting fresh raspberry, cola and cherry notes. Sleek and aromatic I’d love to try this wine with 10-15 years of bottle age. This is the name (meaning “Russian”) of our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir blend of vineyards. There are multiple clones, Pommard from Goff, Martini 13 and Dijon clones 115 and 828 from Monte Cristo."
