Had a bottle a year ago, wanted to see it’s development. EnRoute established in the RRV in 2007 by the partners of Far Niente. Les Pommiers introduced in May 2009 and reflects a blend of vineyards from Green Valley and upper Middle Reach area of RRV AVA. Complex fruit aromas, cedar and mineral notes. On the palate black cherry and ripe cranberry flavors with tobacco & toasty oak, rich structured tannins. Nice mouthfeel, zesty crisp acidity ending with fruit, mineral and oak character. Nice! Aging well!

rich, ripe, medium ruby; slightly confected quality of rose, raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Real Russian River profile - medium body, lovely texture. Heavier style but undeniably Pinot noir - very varietal

EnRoute, established 2007 in Russian River Valley by the partners of Napa’s Far Niente winery. An outstanding wine, deep Ruby with aromas of ripe fruit flavors with subtle notes of earth and spice. On the palate cherry and ripe red plum, savory with gentle herb spice. Smooth fine ripe tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with perfect earthy character. Very Nice!

Bigger extraction #russianrivervalley #pinotnoir. Cherry preserves, slight peppery notes on the nose. Creamy texture on the palate, start to get some varietal character and good acidity as it warms up. I prefer a more elegant, lower ABV style but if heavier Pinot is your thing, here’s a good example though QPR isn’t compelling.

Nice value. Been a drinker of En Route for several vintages. This one very smooth, ripe ruby cherry, modest tannins. Drinking very smooth.

Good open for a more mid price. A bit fruity and smoky but balanced.

Medium body, medium ruby color. Nice cherry, strawberry, and cranberry. Very smooth and easy with ripe fruit.
