2015 River Myst Haven Pinot Nior
Russian River Valley Single Vineyard Moshin Estate Vineyard; Westside Road
River Myst Haven sits in the heart of the beautiful and serene Russian River Valley. Our view overlooks the natural splendor created by the waterway that gives this area its name. The Russian River Valley AVA is one of the few places in the world that offers a climate and terroir perfect for the difficult-to-grow Pinot Noir grape. 2015 was a very dry year in Russian River Valley. Our lack of water meant low yield in the vineyards and very concentrated flavors in the grapes and wines.
The nose starts out with aromas of black cherry, currant, sandalwood and hints of coconut. The palate is full of warm baking spices: all-spice, clove, and a touch of cinnamon plus bright berry notes and some sour plum. The finish is lingering and inviting.
