Mossback Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006
Mossback Pinot Noir is a blend of Russian River appellation fruit from four growers that Winemaker Dan Cederquist has work with for many years. Pinot Noir from the Siebert vineyard contributes the structural component: backbone and color.
John Balleto's Occidental and Burnside vineyards add the rich black cherry character. BCD Ranch Pinot Noir contributes the pretty strawberry and rhubarb flavors. Syrah from the Matchbook Vineyard adds some weight to the delicate Pinot Noir.
