An exquisite growing season paved the way for one of best releases of our King Richard’s Reserve Pinot Noir. The cooler climes of the coastal Russian River Valley started the season with a cool, dry winter and progressed to a warm spring and summer with moderate temperatures. The result was a blank canvas for winemaker Tony Arcudi to showcase exceptional winemaking and purity of fruit.
A dazzling ruby hue and aromas of lavender, dried spices, and ripe dark fruit immediately draw you into the glass. A mouthwatering mid-palate of juicy plums and black cherries is laced with hints of baking spice. With delicate tannins and a long, silky finish, this is Pinot Noir like you’ve never had before.

From the Winemaker
A superb growing season resulted in an exceptional release of this year's King Richard's Reserve. A cool winter gave way to an idyllic spring and warm summer to produce a brilliant vintage of ripe and aromatic fruit. Captivating notes of lavender and dried spices are followed by a juicy mid-palate filled with plums and black cherries. A beautiful, long and silky finish of fine-coated tannins combined with dark fruit reflects the extraordinary legacy of the Russian River Valley.
