"The perfect Pinot Noir hasn't been produced yet, but some of the ephemeral Pinot Noirs crafted by Guy Davis of Davis Family Vineyards have come darn close. Guy's style matches bright, complex aromas and flavors with silky textures and impeccable balance, while capturing the essence of Russian River Valley terroir.
Guy farms 7 acres of Pinot Noir on a vineyard adjacent his home on Laguna Road in the Russian River Valley which provides the fruit for the Russian River Valley, Soul Patch and Pinnacle Pinot Noir bottlings. He also produces vineyard-designated Pinot Noir from Starr Ridge and Horseshoe Bend vineyards, both in the Russian River Valley. Guy is a talented winemaker who makes many varietals besides Pinot Noir all of which are top notch or through the website. He produces several varieties in addition to Pinot Noir, all of which are superb. He also crafts a superb olive oil sold at the winery. 2015 PInotFile "Winery of the Year."
