Davis Bynum Pinot Noirs showcase the unique terroir of distinct sites in the Russian River Valley. Our Lindley's Knoll Pinot Noir comes from a block in our Jane's Vineyard located in the Santa Rosa Plains area of this AVA. The vines here show moderate vigor in their growth habit, mainly due to the acidic, nutrient poor soil and good drainage. We planted on rootstock that has a shallower rooting angle to match the soil profile. Temperate weather is common at Jane's Vineyard, allowing the fruit to ripen in the warm days, yet retain acidity in cool nighttime temperatures.
