    This Wine Is Rated:


    After above-average winter rainfall that lasted through January, a long stretch of dry weather followed. February was both dry and very warm, which prompted aggressive vine growth in early March. The canopies developed rapidly with bloom starting in mid-April and finishing during May when the weather cooled down considerably. Overall, the Pinot Noir crop in the Russian River Valley was lighter than normal due to cold weather in late July and throughout August. No surprise that without a lot of late-summer heat, the grapes ripened more slowly than is typical. We started picking the fruit during the third week of September and finished by the first week of October.

    We were extremely happy with the high-quality and abundant fruit harvested. During fermentation, we used both punch-down and pump-over techniques to ensure balanced extraction of flavor, aromatics, structure and color. To allow both the sweet and structural influences from the barrels to intermingle seamlessly with the rich fruit and ripe tannins of the wine, we aged Böen in100% French oak, 60% new.

    Ruby-red with sparkling garnet highlights.

    AROMATICS: Wild blackberry, Santa Rosa plum & strawberry with hints of oregano, sage & white pepper.

    PALATE: Ripe raspberry, boysenberry, black-fruit jam & warming spices; moderate acidity & bold tannins.

    Chicken roasted with spices, pork chops, bacon sample platter, roasted vegetables, veggie lasagna.
