Davis Bynum Jane's Vineyard Pinot Noir
These are our lightest red wines including Pinot Noir, Gamay and other refreshing reds from around the world.
Davis Bynum is distinguished as the first winery to produce a single vineyard pinot noir from the Russian River Valley. The vintage was 1973 and the grapes were from Joe Rochioli's now prized vineyard. Today, more than thirty years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand crafted creation of single vineyard pinot noir and chardonnay grown exclusively in Russian River Valley.
All of the blocks at Janes Vineyard are hand-picked in the early morning hours and de-stemmed mostly to stainless steel tanks with a small amount in puncheons, macro bins and small concrete tanks. Cold soaking takes for about 5 days, followed by fermentation with native yeasts for extra complexity. Malolactic fermentation ensued in the barrels and was finished by late March.
Red cherry and plum aromas with spicy floral and subtle oak lead to a rich mouthful of fruit flavors and velvety tannins with vibrant acidity and berry fruit on the finish.
