2021 Graham Family Vineyard Pinot Noir
2021 was a typical year at the Graham Family Vineyard with a decent crop size and a long growing season from budbreak to harvest. Although it was in the middle of California's latest three year drought, Graham always seems to have enough water for the vines so they don't require irrigation.
The 2021 Graham Family Vineyard Pinot Noir show a dark garnet color, with an earthy nose of herbs, chanterelle mushrooms, wild raspberries and some cool climate spice. The palate is magnificently supple, with a seamless mouthfeel which allows the Russian River Valley fruit flavors to linger for minutes. Drink this anytime from 2023 through 2033.
