2005 Gunsalus Pinot Noir   

This wine has it all, red cherries, black cherries, bing cherries rounded out with juicy strawberries and raspberries.  A litttle bit of cinnamon and vanilla comes through on the finish of the palate that is very balanced and elegant.

The Gunsalus Vineyard is located in the Green Valley- Sonoma Coast sub-appellation of the Russian RIver Valley, west of Sebastopol.  It is some-what cooler than the overall portion of the RRV appellation and  is ideal for pinot noir  and chardonnay.  We use the larger designation of the Russin River Appellation in to it's own, and along with an anticiapated name change of Green Valley-Russian River, you might just start seeing more labels with this outstanding quality appellation on them.
