ABOUT THE WINE

For third generation Winemaker Gina Gallo, crafting wine from the bountiful lands of Sonoma County is in her soul. Her love of this exquisite region was taught to her through generations of iconic winemakers. Their footsteps through the vineyards and cellars of Sonoma County have left indelible marks on the wine industry. For this never before, never again lot, Gina has applied her prodigious skills to create a unique cuvée all her own.

This Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has been selected from three distinct fermentations. Gina selected Clone 115 for the foundation and structure of this wine, the Pommard clone from Gallo’s esteemed Laguna Ranch Vineyard for sensual length and a small amount of a Middle Reach suitcase selection for finesse and elegance. It is a very personal blend from one of Sonoma County’s winemaking superstars and is a wine that any serious collector will be proud to share for years to come.
