AUGUST BRIGGS 2011 PINOT NOIR RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 750mL

The Russian River Valley has established itself as one of the premier locations for Pinot Noir in the world and accounts for nearly 20% of all the Pinot Noir plantings in California. The characteristically cool climate, which is affected by fog generated by the valley's proximity to the Pacific Ocean, makes it a perfect site to grow these fickle grapes.

August Briggs' Russian River Pinot Noir can be described as their ‘classic’ style pinot noir. In this 2011 vintage, the wine shows off its true Burgundy character. The wine is characterized by vibrant garnet color, upfront exotic aromas of pomegranate, sour cherry, cranberry, and cardamom combine with a delicate note of mint and white pepper. It has a nice core of fruit flavors with a bit of orange peel at the end. Amazingly complex and gets better and better the longer it stays in your glass.
