2002 Pinot Noir, Amour Fou

Amour Fou is a Pinot Noir blend of two Sonoma vineyards harvested in 2002. Keefer Ranch, in the Russian River Valley, accounts for 70 % of this maiden voyage, and the above mentioned Clouds Rest accounts for 30%. The wine spent a total of 16 months in 60% new French oak. There’s nothing shy about Amour Fou. It is big, bold and rich. The color is a deep plum red, with a bit of rose at the edges. The nose is very “red” – frais de bois, ripe plums, cherries, vanilla and butter crust. The flavors, as we said, are quite rich. Imagine an end of the summer pie filled with red plums, strawberries, rhubarb, and cherries.
