2018 Vintage Notes
2018 was a near-perfect growing season started later than previous years, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and is coming to a close for a majority of wineries throughout the valley. Wines from the 2018 vintage are now quietly developing in cellars, and winemakers are pinching themselves and smiling for the gift it appears Mother Nature has given them.
2018 Cultivar Pinot Noir Russian River:
This graceful Pinot Noir from the cool climate of the Russian River is a perfect first release for Cultivar. The wine is dark, brilliant red with purple hues in the glass, and the fresh wild berry aromas entwined with floral notes lead to the extra depth and dimension of exotic teas and black pepper. Ripe and lushly textured plum fruit followed by warm exotic spices dance across your palate in a long finish. It’s impossible to resist when paired with an herbed salmon, tarragon chicken or grilled lamb.
