2010 Longbow Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
The Longbow Pinot Noir is our barrel selection wine. It is chosen from Arista’s most distinct Russian River Valley lots and opens with generous fruit and spice aromas. Flavors like dark cherry, plum, nutmeg, and cardamom spices immediately come to mind. Velvety textures layered with complex flavors of dark plum and black cherry are interspersed with hints of black tea, licorice and cola. This wine boasts of texture and dimension and will continue to improve nicely in cellar for the next 5 to 7 years.
Each barrel chosen for this tete de cuvee is hand selected by our winemaker based on the flavor profile of each vineyard and specific flavor characteristics of the French oak barrels. Each year, this barrel selection represents the highest level of our appellation blends.
