2016 Stewart Russian River Pinot Noir
We hand-picked the Lakeview Vineyard for this Pinot Noir in hopes of giving you the greatest expression of what the Russian River Valley is all about. With a classic bouquet of rose petals and cherries on the nose, the palate is both smooth and textured, giving great mouthfeel and depth. Fresh raspberries and cream compliment the lightly toasted French oak on the finish.
