Tasting Notes:
After taking a few years off from making Pinot Noir, I was convinced by a client to reestablish the program since we’re based in the Russian River Valley. Are we glad we did! This wine is luscious and rich, full bodied possessing an abundance of flavors. You’ll find full flavors of black cherry and strawberries with an earthiness and hints of tar, tobacco and leather that makes this wine seductive and as alluring as those Pinot specimens found across the sea in France.

About the Winery
Inspiration Vineyards Born from a dream and a mid-life career change, Inspiration Vineyards was created in 2002. Jon Phillips' passion for wine, however, dates back much further to his grandparents who made wine in the early 1900's. For years, Jon was determined to break into the wine business by working weekends in tasting rooms, teaching wine classes and ultimately enrolling in a class at UC Davis in Enology and Viticulture. Shortly thereafter Jon made his first barrel of wine, a Zinfandel. Learn more
