Jonvive Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2021


Jonive is the baby of the Underwood family is writing the next chapter in their long history in the wine business. The Underwoods are the owners of Young’s Holdings, one of America’s oldest continuously operated family-owned businesses made famous by Young’s Market.

Over the decades, they’ve continuously expanded their holdings into grocery, soda bottling, meat, seafood wholesale and eventually alcohol beverage wholesale. The founding of Jonive from the 5th generation of the Young’s Family marks an exciting evolution for the family, in establishing estate-grown wines of exceptional quality.

Jonive’s Moon Dust Vineyard is nested within the Sebastopol Hills in the coolest area of the Russian River Valley, home to rare and desirable Goldridge soils. This gives the winery an advantage, especially in a region where extreme temperatures are coveted.

It was first planted to vines in 1998, the vineyard consists of four pristine acres of Chardonnay, comprising two individual clones across two blocks. In 2007, the vineyard was expanded to comprise an additional 11 acres of Pinot Noir, planted to 6 distinct Pinot Noir clones. Jonive is a great reflection of vine maturity, organic farming, high-quality soil, and a world-class microclimate.

93 Points, Decanter
“The Jonvive wines come from their Moon Dust Estate Vineyard in the Sebastopol Hills, a cool site even by Russian River Valley standards. Lushly aromatic with notes of chicory, sumac and loads of wild berries. The palate is fresh but well-structured. Red rasperberries, fresh mint, and savory smoke follow the flavors of cloves. Delcious, but youthful with the structure to continue to develop over the next 8 to 10 years.”
