Pinot Noir Russian River Valley "Stiling"
Notes from the Winery:
In similar fashion to our 2015 Kalen’s Big Boy, the 2015 Stiling Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of our bigger, more exuberant expressions of Stiling in recent memory due to the small crop of tiny berries offering up such concentrated juice. We find the 2015 most reminiscent of the 2009 vintage, another wine that showed beautiful concentration and fruit upon release and is still singing a glorious song today these many years later.
Perfectly ripe and supremely silky, there is ample weight and voluptuous texture, all while remaining fresh and pretty. Positively gushing both red and black fruit and signature Stiling Vineyard baking spices, the 2015 is an absolute flavor bomb that will come to the party ready to play and go the distance in the cellar as well. We like the many expressions of Pinot Noir found all over Sonoma County, from the light and spicy to the full and fruity. Stiling Vineyard embodies the deep fruit of a classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir with true verve and style, and the many fans of this site will cherish another treasure here from 2015!
