2018 Marcucci Vineyard Pinot Noir

2018 Marcucci Vineyard Pinot Noir


A quintessential Russian River Valley Pinot Noir! Bold, complex, and balanced, this wine is not shy to show off. Cherry, black tea, caramel and nutmeg only scratch the surface of the beautifully diverse flavor profile. Bottled unfined and unfiltered helps add to these dimensions and makes this wine so amazing and fun.


"Smooth and juicy with medium ruby color, rich and deep with ripe cherry fruit and good structure; balanced and long; some earthy notes and a long finish" - Blue Lifestyle- 91 Points. 

  • Vineyard Information

    Located in the Russian River Valley AVA in Sonoma, the Marcucci Vineyard sits atop a hill and is a warmer site compared to the typically fog cooled region, leading to more ripe fruit character. The vines benefit greatly from the sandy loam, gold ridge soils due to their great drainage and outstanding, natural chemical balance. This combination allows for proper vine stress while maintaining nutrient balance and required fertility. Russian River Valley is a premium growing region for Pinot Noir due to the overall cooler climate. In fact over 70% of plantings in the AVA are Pinot Noir or Chardonnay (Check out our Catie’s Corner Chardonnay!) as both prefer slightly cooler climates.

  • Varietal Information

    Made with 100% Clone 115 Pinot Noir, this wine is a perfect example of what this clone can do. The small, tight clusters, have a strong purple color and produce round, rich, supple wines, with notable tannin. The clone is known for its aromatic profile and exotic flavors. The slightly warmer vineyard site produce a slightly more tart fruit profile which you will notice here. Not to be forgotten, the rootstock, 101-14, is key in the success of this fruit. Moderately vigorous, vines grow plenty of canopy to protect the fruit from the hilltop sun. This rootstock also manages humidity well, which is critical for the Russian River Valley. Altogether, this clone is destined for success when farmed this well!
