2010 En Route "Les Pommiers" Russian River Pinot Noir
Les Pommiers is named for the apple orchards which once dominated the Russian River Valley. Les Pommiers is a blend of Pinot Noir fruit primarily sourced from the Green Valley and upper Middle Reach areas of the Russian River Valleys including the Manzana and Amber Ridge vineyards. This produces a cuvee of deft intensity and elegance.
91 points Wine Spectator Tight and detailed, with loamy earth, dried berry, crushed rock, fresh plum and black cherry. Slow to unfold, but does so gracefully, ending with firm tannins. Good to cellar. Best from 2013 through 2023. (9/2012)
