Father John Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014
A clear ruby red colour, this quietly magnificent Pinot Noir has a seductive, complex aroma of wild strawberry, redcurrant and fresh spice from whole bunches. The palate is medium-bodied, delicate, with great freshness and clarity of fruit expression allied to silky tannin. Harmonious from start to finish, this Pinot Noir fully embodies the joy of the new wave California style.
Father John is made in honor of the life of the late Reverend John Weaver, a renowned Episcopalian priest. Father John was extremely influential on those who were lucky enough to share their time with him. He was dedicated to a life of honesty and reverence and was committed to living in peace. In 2010 Father John Wines was started with the idea that each wine should be true to its provenance. That is to say, each vineyard should express its own distinct character. Their wines are able to fully express their specific site and local microclimates, yet are distinctive in their structural balances and individual flavors. All of our vineyard sites have strong Pacific coast influences.
