2018 Enroute Pinot Noir Les Pommiers
2018 Enroute Pinot Noir Les Pommiers The nose instantly fills with luscious aromas of juicy ripe red cherry, raspberry, star jasmine, with a light spice and mineral earthiness that while subdued, is still stark. Upon entry, the palate of this 2018 is silky and layered with flavors that are reflective of this wine’s aromatics—bright red fruit, rose petal and a touch of forest floor.
The culmination of a decades-long quest to find the most preeminent locations in Northern California to produce outstanding, unparalleled Pinot Noir, EnRoute Winery was established in 2007 by the partners of Napa Valley’s Far Niente. Their mission brought them to the Russian River Valley, a short distance by car — but worlds away to the keen-sensed vintner.
This valley enveloped in fog, where wet winters and springs give way to moderate summers, feels almost divinely crafted for the singular purpose of growing amazing Pinot Noir. For winemakers with a passion as strong as ours, this idyllic American Viticultural Area (AVA) might as well be paradise: Year after year, the Russian River Valley’s slow, consistent growing conditions allow us to attentively shepherd every step of the vinification process — and that means perfectly crafted Pinots for wine lovers like you.
We fell in love with the Russian River Valley region and built a strong commitment to expanding our winemaking efforts. Since our founding, we have established our own vineyards and a winery so that we may capture the magical essence of Pinot Noir.
