Winemaker Notes

A fragrant dried rose petal and berry potpourri flow a lush, juicy entry. Darker raspberry preserves and blackberry flavors fill the midpalate, with clove and forest floor accents showing through to the finish. This wine is opulent and silky from start to end, with lovely fruit and spice notes that linger on the palate.

About EnRoute Winery

EnRoute to a Finer Standard in Pinot Noir

The culmination of a decades-long quest to find the most preeminent locations in Northern California to produce outstanding, unparalleled Pinot Noir, EnRoute Winery was established in 2007 by the partners of Napa Valley’s Far Niente. Their mission brought them to the Russian River Valley, a short distance by car — but worlds away to the keen-sensed vintner.

This valley enveloped in fog, where wet winters and springs give way to moderate summers, feels almost divinely crafted for the singular purpose of growing amazing Pinot Noir. For winemakers with a passion as strong as ours, this idyllic American Viticultural Area (AVA) might as well be paradise: Year after year, the Russian River Valley’s slow, consistent growing conditions allow us to attentively shepherd every step of the vinification process — and that means perfectly crafted Pinots for wine lovers like you.

We fell in love with the Russian River Valley region and built a strong commitment to expanding our winemaking efforts. Since our founding, we have established our own vineyards and a winery so that we may capture the magical essence of Pinot Noir.

Single-Vineyard Pinot Noirs

When we began our pursuit of the pinnacle of Pinot Noir — embodied in our “Les Pommiers” blend — we chose to approach the varietal by combining the best fruit from vineyards across the Russian River Valley region. Over the years, we discovered that several vineyards consistently stood out for their beautiful expression of site. Hence, we were inspired to explore single-vineyard offerings.

We couldn’t be happier with that decision. Our single-vineyard offerings range from intensely structured wines with bold aromas to more delicate Pinot Noirs with silky tannins and subtle fruit and earth notes. These are the differences that make Pinot Noir such an intriguing and exciting varietal to work with, and we’re elated to share its diversity of tastes and textures.

We debuted our EnRoute Single-Vineyard Pinot Noirs with the 2013 vintage, featuring wines from our Amber Ridge and Northern Spy Vineyards. Our single-vineyard program showcases the pedigree of each site, while ultimately underscoring the greatness of our EnRoute Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, “Les Pommiers.”
