Lot #47 MIGRATION
RUNNING CREEK BARREL SELECTION
Running Creek Vineyard
- Russian River Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
Experience the best of their Russian River Valley fruit with this year’s “Running Creek Barrel Selection” lot from Migration Winery, a pinnacle Pinot Noir from The Duckhorn Portfolio. Migration’s estate Running Creek Vineyard features 70 acres of Pinot Noir planted in fertile Yolo loam soils, yielding a diverse array of exceptional fruit. The vineyard is shaped by morning fog that is one of the hallmarks of the region, cooling the vines like clockwork, preserving the natural acidity that is necessary for great Pinot Noir.
Since its founding in 2001, The Duckhorn Portfolio’s Migration Winery has been dedicated to exploring Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California’s finest cool-climate appellations, most notably the legendary Sonoma Coast. In 2021, Migration Winery opened its first tasting room in the picturesque Carneros region of Napa Valley, welcoming guests to sample a selection of single vineyard wines from throughout top growing regions.
This alluring 100% Pinot Noir displays tantalizing aromas of raspberry, blackberry, cocoa and warm baking spices framed by an abundance of opulent tannins on the palate. The new French oak imparts a subtle hint of vanilla as the wine makes its way to a lingering, focused finish.
