Davis Bynum Pinot Noir 2008
The guiding motivation behind the wines of Davis Bynum has always been and will forever be, to let the land speak, specifically the terrior of Russian River Valley. The cool maritime conditions of the region are ideally suited for early ripening chardonnay and pinot noir and finding excellent vineyards within this world-class region continues to drive the style of Bynum wines. We determined long ago that our wines should be shaped by the land from which they come.
Nature takes the lead role and our viticultural and winemaking practices fall in line. We take into account what the vineyard provides us and carefully apply our hand to coax quality with balanced flavor and textural elements. All of the grapes are picked into half-ton macro bins during the early and coolest part of the day. The grapes are then delivered to the winery where they are sorted and carefully hand-guided through vinification. The end result is a collection of wines that clearly herald from Russian River Valley.
