Nue Wilde, “Single Vineyard” Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Sonoma County, California 2019 (750mL)
This is the first time the “Nue Wilde” winery has graced our platform. Proprietor and winemaker, Ben Herod is a one-man show specializing in single varietal and single-vineyard wines. All wines are 100% wild, naturally fermented to further enhance the natural environment that the grape is grown in. Ben’s minimalistic approach pays off in spades, allowing for the wine to illustrate a sense of place. We were extremely pleased with his new release Sauvignon Blanc and Russian River Pinot Noir for their quality in relation to their affordable price.
Ben scored when he was able to secure top-tier fruit from the Waters Ranch Vineyard right off of Westside Road in the heart of Russian River Valley. This stretch of West Sonoma County is where producers like Williams-Selyem and the Rochioli Family call home. The wine displays a textbook nose for Russian River Pinot: briary and dark fruited with turned earth. The fruit becomes brighter in the mouth with plenty of berry bramble and dark cherry. Baking spice and an umami savory note weave through the gorgeous fruit brilliantly. Extremely fresh and mouthwatering with a hint of mineral crunch. Solid Pinot for an extremely affordable price!
