A dramatic nose carries dark fruit aromatics carry the wine, and the richness is palate-coating from front to back. But for me, the grip the wine carries is what sets it apart- it is at once masculine yet smooth, but what really stands out is all that power.
Driven by aromatics of plums, cherries, and notes of red licorice and black licorice, it is weighty and yet not at all heavy. Somehow, it shows that a wine can at once be lithe and powerful.
The nose has a delicate aromatic profile, that initially shows lighter fruits which evolve to riper notes as it opens up, but with the hint of rose petal we so often see at Bucher. The flavors are fresh; a nice meld of cherries and pomegranate, with a subtle underlying note of mushroom.
It took 8 vineyards, 15 different clones of Pinot and 6 separate blending trials to craft a blend we feel fully expresses the beauty of the Russian River Valley and the grace of the 2016 vintage.
From the tiniest grapes around comes a perennial favorite- a rich and powerful wine that retains a very focused core.
From a tiny vineyard that holds a big place in our hearts, comes a wine with a singularly distinct voice.
