2005 David Bruce Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2005

Region: Sonoma Coast

Country: USA

 

Winemaker Notes

This vintage is a selection of superb Pinot Noir grapes from the Sonoma Coast. The region combines cool ocean climate and sufficient rainfall to promote natural sugar development and flavorful grape acidity.

Nose: This wine has an expression of red cherry, cranberry and plum coupled with lingering notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and a subtle hint of clove.

Palate: Red cherry, plum, vanilla, citrus, toasted pine nuts with a mineral aspect. Fine tannin structure and a long finish.

About Winery

The David Bruce winery was established in the early 1960s and was one of the first pioneering wineries of the region to lead a modern resurgence of premium winemaking. David Bruce purchased land above the fogline in the Santa Cruz mountains after completing his medical residency and set about clearing and planting the vineyard by hand. For 25 years, he divided his time between the vineyard and his dermatology practice until 1985 when he retired from medicine in order to focus on the vineyard. David Bruce Winery was one of the 12 Californian wineries to participate in the now famous 1976 `Judgment of Paris` in which California Cabernets and Chardonnays outscored French Bordeaux and Burgundies in a blind tasting. Today, the David Bruce Winery has 16 acres, 9 of them focus solely on Pinot Noir.

Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the David Bruce winery has been producing stellar wines since it was founded in the early 1960s. The 2005 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is an elegant expression of rich cherries, cranberries, rose petals, cinnamon and vanilla on the nose with the addition of plum, citrus and toasted pecan on the palate. Fine-grained tannins provide nice structure through to the long, lingering finish. Aged for 15 months in a combination of American, French and Hungarian oak.
