Reata El Diablo Vineyard Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014
CLICK TO ENLARGE
Love juicy, ripe, delicious, spicy Pinot? This wine is for you! We’re huge fans of the Russian River Valley (always have been) but pricing has been somewhat of a barrier to us with regards to expanding our selection. How many $50+ Pinots can one store sell? Answer, not as many as we used to….
El Diablo is a hillside site, planted on Gravelly and sandy loam soil with clay underneath. It makes for a classically elegant, spicy Russian River Pinot but the hillside orientation perhaps results in a fuller-bodied spin on the genre.
