PINOT NOIR

2020 | RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY

“Raeburn Wines are inspired by my mother, Phyllis Benham, who is most comfortable exploring the great outdoors. She taught me to appreciate natures gifts, but “to leave well enough alone”. We take the same approach when making wine, a task made easier because we select grapes from Sonoma County’s finest vineyards and carefully bring our wines to life.”

- DEREK BENHAM, RAEBURN WINERY FOUNDER

VINIFICATION: Our Pinot Noir grapes are hand-picked during the cool early morning hours to preserve their fresh, delicate flavors. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are carefully destemmed and cold soaked for several days to enhance color and flavor Fermentation takes place in small, open top containers with twice daily punch downs to intensify color and structure. After a gentle presssing, the wine is racked into French oak barrels, 25% new, for 11 months of aging.

VINTAGE: 2020 was a challenging year in the Russian River Valley. The wildfires in and around Sonoma County pushed our winemaking team to continue to be resilient and delivered beautifully crafted and well-balanced wines.

WINEMAKER NOTES: Brilliant crimson in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with pleasing aromas of baking spice and vanilla. The palate is marked with stunning fruit flavors of lush wild blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry with undertones of roasted hazelnut. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.
