SITE DESCRIPTION
In the Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley, this vineyard site enjoys refreshing daytime breezes and cool – but not cold – nighttime temperatures. The strongly marine-influenced climate means less severe temperature shifts from day to night – good for ripening because the vines never completely shut down. The high density vine spacing (1 x 2m) promotes excellent vine balance and development of grape flavors, structure and concentration.
FRUIT CHARACTER
Pinot Noir:
  • Deeper, darker color due to cool climate and production of more anthocyanins
  • Great structure from lots of fine, silky tannins (some tannin material is formed as the grape’s natural sunblock so cooler climates often produce finer, less aggressive tannins.)
  • Cool climate yields dark fruit flavors and aromas such as cassis and boysenberry as opposed to cherry and raspberry
  • Earthy characteristics also from cool climate. Hotter climates often yield more fruit-forward flavors and aromas while cooler climates instead create floral, earthy characteristics

Wine Enthusiast
Editor's Choice. "This floral wine opens as if in a damp but not wet forest, surrounded by ripe, red cherry trees. Likable from the start, its grippy on the palate, expressively juicy, seductive and refined. Blackberry and dried herb pop on the finish, providing a darker side of the red fruit." — V.B., December 2015

The Wine Advocate
"Those looking for complex Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs need look no further than Farrell’s 2013 Pinot Noir Hallberg Vineyard. This wine displays notes of roasted herbs, underbrush, red and black cherries and forest floor in a decidedly Côte de Nuits-like style. It is medium-bodied, refreshing, supple and delicious. Drink it over the next 5-7 years." — R.P., March 2016
