2020 Balletto Pinot Noir

2020 Balletto Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley, California

The 2020 Russian River Valley pinot noir was grown on seven different estate pinot vineyards. The sites range from quiet rolling hills to steep and cold hillside plantings. This diverse combination adds distinct elements from each site and creates a complex wine with structure and grace. Balletto’s pinot is exclusively fermented with indigenous yeast in small, six-ton open top tanks and aged in French oak barrels. New oak is used sparingly in order to enhance the wine, not dominate it. This vintage saw 32% new French oak. 

The wine opens with savory and spicy potpourri aromatics that are followed with seductive dark fruits. There’s a lot of aromatic complexity, and the wine is ever changing with time in the glass. Its medium weigh is nicely enhanced with notable tannins and acidity that keeps it focused, balanced and taut. The overall impact is complex, impressive and delicious. The wine will develop with five to 10 years of bottle aging
