Wine maker notes
Davis Bynum pinot noir is driven by vineyard sites. True to long-established form, it remains a very food friendly wine, with bright fruit aromas and flavors, a rich yet soft, silky texture and a very long finish. Our Russian River Valley pinot noir takes a series of exceptional vineyards and blends them together to create a classic wine that captures all the regional traits.
Davis Bynum is distinguished as the first winery to produce a single vineyard pinot noir from Russian River Valley. The vintage was 1973 and the grapes were from Joe Rochioliís now prized vineyard. Today, more than thirty years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through hand crafted pinot noir and chardonnay grown exclusively from prime vineyards in Russian River Valley.
