This Pinot Noir has always been a way to really showcase Riverbench Vineyard. Each year, we carefully select the clones and barrel lots that will make up this bottling so that it's the best qualities of all different parts of the property. The 2013 harvest was fast and furious, with everything coming into the winery in about ten days from start to finish. But if we didn't hurry this wine along; it received plenty of time in barrel to develop amazing complexity and deliciousness. The palate boasts juicy red fruit avors, and a hint of our signature Riverbench smoke and clove. Try it with saucy barbecue or wild mushroom anything.

Wine EnthusiastThe nose on this workhorse wine for the producer is reserved, but hints of wild berry, crushed clove, dried violets and potpourri emerge with patience. The palate shows lots of tea leaf, dried sagebrush and even patchouli, not offering much overt fruit character.
