Bright red fruit and a velvety texture. Likely the oak but I haven't had many of Fantesca pinots

For a RRV pinot much more subtle than one would expect. I really enjoyed it!

Yeah, this was pretty awesome. It has been a while since a Russian River Pinot has gotten my attention.

As I’m pouring it into the decanter, I can smell it from 2 feet away. The best thing they make? They need some bottle age!Tremendous Pinot Noir.
