I've had access to Widdoes Vineyard for 26 years; named for its owner, Don Widdoes, and farmed by Dutton Ranch who planted the Martini clone in 1982. widdoes vineyard pinot noir bottle shotThe soil is quintessential Russian River Goldridge fine sandy loam. Located just West of the little town of Graton, it is a magical location for pinot noir. The fog rolls in first and burns off late in this Green Valley sub-appellation.

A dark blue/purple color with an almost opaque center radiates out to the rim with a deep purple hue. Classic Russian River cherry cola, sweet oak and dark red fruits on the nose extending to the palate: plum, cherry cobbler and dark currant fruit. Medium weight with good tannins for ageing and a rich finish.
