RIO RUSO, PINOT NOIR TASTING SHEET

The wine name: Rio Ruso

Rio Ruso is Spanish for Russian River. Although the river has had many Native American, Spanish and Mexican names, the Russian River takes its present name from the Russian fur traders and explorers that founded early settlements in the Fort Ross, California area.

Appellation: Russian River Valley

Part of the Sonoma Coast AVA, the Russian River Valley is known for producing premium quality Pinot Noir grapes. This valley has a characteristic cool climate affected by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. This cool weather and fertile land let the vines mature slowly and impart the grapes with maximum flavors, sugars, acids and the necessary components that make up this beautiful Vino Vargas wine.

Grape Varietal: Pinot Noir

The classic red grape of Burgundy, Pinot Noir is an easy drinking wine with very distinctive aromas of strawberry and other lush berry fruits.

Source: Single vineyard

This wine is made from grapes that were harvested by hand at the break of day. The grapes come from a single vineyard to ensure maximum flavor, consistency and authenticity. The vines are clone 115 which are highly desirable for their berry size and intensity of flavor and aroma.

Visual:

Nice reds and purples reminiscent of strawberry and pomegranate.

Aroma:

Strawberry, blackberry, vanilla, spice and a bit of smoke.

Taste:

Dry with balanced fruit, acidity, tannins and overall smooth silky mouth feel.

Barrel: New French Oak, 30%

Rio Ruso was aged in wooden barrels and monitored closely to impart a 30% new French oak taste. This foundation gives the wine a luscious blend of spice, vanilla and slight char.

Pairings:

A delicious wine to serve with soft and mild cheeses like brie, smoked nuts, lighter meats like lamb, poultry and fish or shellfish.
