Product description

Wente Vineyards Riva Ranch Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is sourced exclusively from the family’s vineyard in Arroyo Seco, Monterey. Arroyo Seco is the ideal region to grow this Burgundian varietal because of the long, cool growing season, which allows the grapes to fully ripen and develop deep fruit flavors. The gravelly-loam soils found here, rich with shale and limestone deposits, impart desirable earthy and mineral qualities to the wine. Wente Vineyards farms 8 clones of Pinot Noir (Pommard, Martini, 114, 115, 667, 777, 828, and 77), with each offering different flavors, textures and aromatics to the wine. The 2017 Riva Ranch Pinot Noir is subtle with delicate hints of baked red apple and hints of baking spice such as cinnamon and nutmeg. This wine has beautiful lingering tannins making this a great wine for food pairings.
