Russian River Valley
Red Table Wine
Like many of California’s most celebrated vineyards located in the iconic Russian River Valley, Bootlegger’s Hill was once an apple orchard. Surrounded by redwoods and firs, the cool climate and well-drained Goldridge soils of this revered site keep crops small, adding intensity, elegance, and enticing flavours to both our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
From its spherical structure on the palate to flavours of pristine berry, there is an effortless harmony to this wine. Aromas of raspberry and strawberry emerge from the glass with subtle notes of sarsaparilla and sage, while supple tannins and a hint of oak lead to a remarkably long finish.
“This is a cooler and later-ripening site, planted to an array of clones. Dried flowers and forest-wood aromas with leafy and sappy notes lead to a palate that has ripeness and lighter fruit flavours. Nicely detailed and very silky tannins and latent, rich blue-fruit flavours. Drink or hold.” 96 points, James Suckling, December 2019
“Brought up in 45% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Bootlegger’s Hill Vineyard reveals a medium ruby/translucent colour as well as a complex bouquet of redcurrants, leafy herbs, damp earth, iodine, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, with an elegant texture, lots of classic Russian River spice, and outstanding length. it shows the more elegant streamlined style of the vintage, yet I suspect it’s going to age gracefully. Give bottles 2-3 years and it should keep for a decade.” 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck, May 2020
