2014 Legacy Ruth's Pinot Noir
Earthy, Dark Fruit, Powerful, Dramatic
Named after Bill Stoller's mother, this wine is an exclusive assemblage of our four finest barrels, this wine expresses the elegance and refinement of our vineyard. This combination of mature fruit and French oak produces a long-lived wine that will further evolve with cellaring.
A temperate spring and perfect weather around fruit set coupled with a terrific summer of warm temperatures and dry days led to a beautiful vintage of perfectly sized, lusciously ripe fruit. We had our earliest harvest on record, starting with our younger Pinot Noir sections on September 8th. The wines from this vintage are concentrated and fruit driven, illustrating both restraint in winemaking—letting our vineyard display its nature as well as the power of a robust growing season.
