The 2014 Janes Vineyard Pinot Noir has a beautiful ruby red hue with aromas of cherry,
cranberry, tea leaves, dusty oak and earth. On the palate, the dark cherries, red plums and vanilla characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. Warm, bright and full of flavor, the Janes Pinot Noir is a wonderful combination of fruit, spice and earth. Enjoy this wine with a variety of dishes including Comté cheese and charcuterie, roasted vegetable pasta, or roasted duck with a fig chutney.
Davis Bynum is distinguished as the first winery to produce a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. The vintage was 1973 and the grapes were from Joe Rochiolis now prized vineyard. Today, our heritage of winemaking lives on through hand-crafted single vineyard wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley
The vines at Jane’s Vineyard generally show moderated vigor in their growth habit, mainly due to relatively nutrient poor soil and fairly good drainage from the gravelly loam. The Huichica soil is shallow, with a hardpan at a low depth, so we planted on 101-14 rootstock which has a shallower rooting angle to match the soil profile. Correspondingly, the vines get water stressed, which we watch closely during the warmer months of the summer.
