SKU #1482822 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is a secret collaboration between several winemakers with great vineyard sourcing who have come together here to make a masterful, value-minded blend. The majority of the grapes come from Russian River Valley, with others from Sonoma Coast, Marin, Anderson Valley and Bennett Valley. Tea, earth, stone and herb tones enliven a core of cranberry and rhubarb, offering length and depth. The tannins are velvety smooth and seductive. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

If you know and love Reeve Wines, you're going to want to check out BloodRoot; the crafty Noah and Kelley Dorrance are behind this new project! Winemaker's Notes: "This first release from BloodRoot offers all that and then some. Utilizing different fruit sources mostly throughout Sonoma County (but also neighboring counties of Marin and Mendocino), the BloodRoot winemakers created a Pinot Noir blend that effortlessly melds cool, coastal Pinot elegance with the velvety polish of culty high-end Pinot producers. The 2018 Pinot Noir comes from a relatively cool vintage. Twelve different vineyard sites were used to create this Sonoma County Pinot Noir. Harvest dates ranged from as early as September 3 all the way until October 10, which is very late for Pinot. The wine was fermented in small open top vessels with hand punch downs daily."

I was fascinated when I read the story behind this collaboration wine coming from a mystery squad of winemakers. A Pinot showcasing grapes sourced from 5 different valleys in NorCal? Sure, sign me up. On the nose I gather aromas of cherry, duff and a hint of green tea. Upon sipping I find ripe cranberry, black cherry, a whisper of tea and nice acidity on the finish. The tannins are soft and hold the aforementioned flavors on the palate for a moment. A very nice wine at a very nice price.

Are you looking for an incredible every day pinot noir at the 20 dollar price point? Luckily, we have many coming from all different regions. However, me being the North Coast pinot lover that I am, I currently have a particular fondness for Bloodroot. Which is only 20 dollars, but easily drinks like a fantastic 50 dollar pinot from Anderson Valley or the Sonoma Coast. Elegant and packed with bright red fruited characters. You're gonna want a bottle of this at your next dinner party.
