Sequana drink some Pinot Noir?

She's only the goddess of the river Seine! She rides around in a duck boat (not unlike the Ride the Ducks tour boats we know today).

In ancient times (or whenever), the sick and weak brought models of innards and limbs to Sequana, hoping she could magic up a cure. We're not sure if that worked out so well, but just in case, we approached Sequana and her enchanted Duck Boat with a list of other requests:

-Please give me a marsupialian pouch so I can always have a snack.

-I'd like the power to read minds, but only the minds of people who are currently on the toilet.

-Keep Rob Ford around just a little longer, that I might look better in my own political endeavors.

-Please force Nick Saban and Les Miles to do a buddy cop movie together.

-Whenever I sneeze, tiny, colorful balloons come out of my nose instead of boogers.

-I want to be constantly surrounded by Bald Eagles.

-Can you give me the ability to keep houseplants alive?

-Please make it so cats speak English.

-I just want some friends.

-Make all salads taste like birthday cake.

-Give me the gift of identifying any kind of apple just by waving a hand over it. And I'd also like some friends.

Features

2010 Sequana Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 750ml 3-Pack

This wine has a distinctive and recognizable Russian River flavor profile. On the nose, the wine carries a bouquet of rose petal and spice that lead to flavors of bing cherry and raspberry on the palate. The finish is layered and balanced, with dusty earth overtones.

Grapes from the Green Valley sites were hand-picked and hand-sorted, then cold-soaked for five days prior to fermentation to maximize flavor and color extraction. Hand punch-downs in small open-top fermenters provided rich color and structure, and the wine was aged sur lie in French oak barrels for 11 months prior to bottling, where it was allowed to gain further complexity before release.

Winemaker: Winemaker James MacPhail has long been recognized for producing exceptional wines from the Sonoma Coast and Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley. With Sequana, he extends his touch to feature vineyard designates and exceptional cuvées from notable growers in the Russian River Valley and Monterey’s well-regarded Santa Lucia High- lands, crafting limited-release wines of exceptional character and grace.

Appellation: The Russian River Valley is among the premier Pinot Noir growing regions in California. Fog rolls across the Estero Americano through Valley Ford and the Petaluma Gap, allowing the grapes to rest most evenings before greeting the sun late each morning. In this coolest part of the Russian River Valley, the extended growing season, well-drained Goldridge soils and a generally Mediterranean climate results in complex, elegant wines with well-balanced acidity and distinctive notes of ripe cherry.

Vineyards: Exceptional vineyards are featured here, including lots from Sundawg Ridge, Dutton Ranch and Lakeview in Russian River’s Green Valley. The Pommard clone brings intense, rich colors, a luxurious mouthfeel and silky tannins to this offering, alongside the Dijon Clone 115, known for its aromatics and Burgundian characteristics.
