Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Davis Bynum Russian River Pinot Noir 2018

Davis Bynum Pinot Noir showcases terroir: differences in flavor from distinct sites in the Russian River Valley. Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir blends the characters of three distinct Russian River Valley neighborhoods and select blocks from the Petaluma Gap to create a wine with richness, balance and complexity. The darker fruit tones, richer mouthfeel and velvety tannins come from fruit grown in the warmer climate of the Santa Rosa Plains with its clay-rich soils underlain by volcanic ash.

The fruit grown on the sandy soil of the warm Middle Reach neighborhood on Westside Road add to the spice, floral and red cherry fruit tones. The fruit from vineyards in the much cooler Green Valley neighborhood add fresh blueberry and vibrant acidity from the lauded Goldridge sandy loam soils. And a select piece from our hillside vineyard in the Petaluma Gap, within view of San Pablo Bay, adds racy acidity and briary fruit to the blend.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Mar 31, 2022 - Rated 90:
Shows accents of fresh-cracked white pepper to the dried red fruit and berry flavors, which are framed by crunchy acidity and tannins. The juicy finish offers vibrant forest floor notes and hints of hazelnut. Drink now. 16,500 cases made. — KM

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 4/1/2022 - Rated 91:
This is a rich, rounded wine sourced from several vineyards, including the estate Jane's Vineyard. Tea, forest and cardamom contribute a spicy earthiness that finds its match in juicy strawberry, cherry and soft tannins. VIRGINIE BOONE

James Suckling Review - Published April 7, 2022 - Rated 91:
A soft and fruity red with plum and berry aromas and flavors. Citrus and cedar, too. Easy to drink with real Russian River pinot character of ripe strawberries and warm, earthy undertones. Sustainable. Drink or hold.
