Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:

From its alluring deep ruby color to its powerful aromas of dark chocolate, dusty cedar, bright cherry, raspberry and toasted almond, this is a dynamic and complex wine. While it possesses a lovely rich, sappy quality, with smooth, supple tannins, it also displays a brightness and energy that adds freshness to the complex fruit and spice flavors. The finish is silky and long, with lingering notes of lavender and spice..

Vineyard Character:
Like several of our finest vineyards, Chenoweth Ranch was originally cultivated as an apple orchard. Planted in Goldridge soils on the far western edge of the Russian River Valley appellation, this beautiful 7-acre vineyard is located in Green Valley, one of the region ’s coolest areas, and is farmed almost entirely for Patz & Hall (Charlie makes a small amount of his own wine from the vineyard). Though enjoying excellent sunlight from its slight south-facing orientation, the vineyard is sheltered by steep western hills, which protect the Dijon clone grapes from late-afternoon baking, while helping the fruit to retain natural acidity.

Winemaking:
100% Pinot Noir
Multi-yeast fermentations (wild & cultured)
15% whole clusters
100% malo-lactic fermentation in barrel
70% new Burgundian French oak barrels
Bottled without fining or filtration

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker:
"The 2014 Pinot Noir Chenoweth Ranch is a Russian River cuvée of 1,284 cases. This sees a lot more new oak, at 70%, and a slightly higher percentage of whole-clusters/stems (15%). The Chenoweth Vineyard, which is seven acres in the cool, Green Valley, has produced a wine that displays a deep ruby/purple color, loads of raspberry and black cherry fruit, a hint of cola, baking spices and loamy soil undertones. The wine is lovely, medium to full-bodied, rich and complex. Look for it to drink well for up to a decade." - Robert M. Parker Jr. (April 2017)
