Pillow Road Vineyard

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

A real sleeper RRV Pinot from Ladera. Just brilliant notes of blueberry, dark berries and a hint of mushroom. There's a wonderful balance of floral notes to the generous finish — 4 years ago

Nothing’s gonna change until there are more pictures of American wine held in work gloves instead of wine held by models like they were holding perfume bottles Maybe you know what I’m saying . Maybe you don’t. — 6 years ago

Pillow Rd. Vineyard

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2011

Pillow Rd. Vineyard is situated to the southwest of Sebastopol, not far from the southern tip of the Russian River Valley, and planted to two acres of Chardonnay and seven acres of Pinot Noir. Clones 777, 115, and Pommard made up the first plantings in 2000, with Calera and Swan being added later (replacing Gravenstein apple trees). The vineyard has courted her fair share of suitors, originally being one of Duckhorn’s sources for its Goldeneye Pinot Noir. The first commercial vintage under the Pillow Rd. label was 2006. I’m not sure whether Ladera had entered the scene at that point, but it was definitely in time for their release of the 2009 vintage. In 2016 PlumpJack Group acquired Ladera’s Howell Mountain vineyard and winemaking facility, and while it appears the Pillow Rd. Vineyard wasn’t included in that sale, I haven’t seen anything that spells that out explicitly. Regardless, what is certain is that Napa Cab makers can’t quit this Russian River Pinot vineyard. It had some kinks to work out, but ultimately it’s built for pleasure and not complexity, and it eventually got there. Cherry cola, sassafras, baking spice, butterscotch, and just enough of a citrus edge to keep from losing its balance. — 6 years ago
