As you pour this 2019 Pinot Noir into your glass, you're immediately greeted by a rich, dark cherry aroma that wafts up to your nose. But it's not just fruit that you're smelling – there's also a deep, wet stone character that adds a subtle layer of complexity to the wine. As you take a sip, you'll taste the flavors of black tea and tart cherry, with just a hint of earthiness in the background. One of the most delightful aspects of this Pinot Noir is its bright, rose petal finish. It's as if the wine is lifting you up on a cloud of delicate, floral notes, leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Overall, this 2019 Pinot Noir is a lovely, medium-bodied wine that offers a wonderful balance of fruit, earth, and floral notes.
Foster Vineyard is located just off River Road within the Russian River Valley. Our focus for the 2019 Vintage was clonal selections of Pinot Noir. Clones 115 and Pommard were co-fermented to produce a Burgundian styled wine, framed with the granular earthiness of Pommard and elegance of Clone 115.
