In the heart of California´s Sonoma County, Russian River Valley offers cool climate and ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir. The Jacaman selected Russian River Valley fruit for the appellation’s reputation as one of the leading North American Pinot Noir regions. With the objective to honor the origins of the grape, traditional Burgundy-style winemaking is a priority in the cellar.

“The wine delivers forward aromas of espresso bean, cherry and orange zest. Smoky cherry flavors with notes of nutmeg and brown sugar. Toasted oak and caramel-like sweetness cap the close.”
J Jacaman’s flagship wine, the Russian River was described as “lip-smacking good” in Wine Enthusiast, and three consecutive vintages were awarded as “Best Californian Pinot Noir” in Quarterly Reviews of Wines.
