Above average but lots of dark fruit. Preferring this less than in the past. Thought some of the fruit would have mellowed to earthiness with the aging but no. Not as good if a value as it once was. Sad. — 6 months ago
We opened the 2021 Bench Sonoma County Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
On the nose there is strawberry, cherry, cranberry, clove, spice, mushroom, vanilla, cola and earth.
On the palate tgere is strawberry, cherry, raspberry, vanilla, cedar, cinnamon, mushrooms and earth.
This is a medium bodied smooth supple mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + firm fine smooth tannins that leaves you with a long red fruit earthy finish. Enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 9 months ago

100% Dry Creek Single Vineyard Zinfandel. Deep ruby/purple color. Intense aromas of black cherry, plum, dates and vanilla with a touch of mint. Dark black cherry/raspberry/plum flavors with hints of vanilla oak and black pepper on the lingering and juicy finish. Medium-plus body and soft tannins. Beautifully balanced (nice acidity) and well structured. Just pop and pour. Great option for a picnic or summer barbecue. — 4 months ago
