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.

Outer quote mark Trim and earthy, with a distinct minerally edge to the dried berry, sage, rose water and wild raspberry flavors, which build and gain depth and dimension on the long, full finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. Inner quote mark
