Food Pairing Suggestions
Pinot Noir is known to be one of the most food friendly red wines. Pair this Pinot Noir with your Thanksgiving holiday meal, especially turkey, duck and mushroom dishes. Lighter body makes it a nice pairing for fatty fish, such as seared salmon and tuna, but it also makes this wine a fantastic pairing for rare filet mignon. Try it with wood fired pizzas, earthy cheeses such as aged Camembert.

Winemaker Notes

Grapes were picked before sunrise, hand sorted and de-stemmed then cold soaked for five days before going through whole berry fermentation and receiving two punch downs per day. Fermentation took approximately 12 to 16 days in an open-top five-ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels.


Aged in 30% new French Oak, 30% one year old French Oak and 40% older. Wine remained in barrel for ten months with one racking at five months during blending.


Halleck Family

“Three Sons was born in 2003, the “little brother” to our Estate Grown, and a college fund for our sons, Connor, Adam, and Quinn. Their names and ages grace every bottle, by vintage. It’s a classic Russian River Pinot with a hat-tip to Burgundy. Beautifully balanced, it leads with dark cherry, delivering a mid-palate of clove, cinnamon and forest floor, and a lingering finish of black pepper. A passion for Pinot leads the charge!” Proprietor Ross Halleck
