Blueberry , leather , toasty oak background bigger style - I had remembered a more restrained style - for this bigger riper style this is very good - just like to see it rained in a bit

Substantial pinot noir from RRV, succulent fruit, nice acidity and minimal tannins. This is very enjoyable and a great example of Pinot from RRV. Drink now or hold for a couple of years.

2013 vintage. Pretty textbook example. Elegant and red-fruited with good acidity, but enough structure and heft to be a more serious wine. Fresh cranberry, tart cherry, raspberry, red apple skin, lingonberry, purple and red flowers, little smoke, freshly-tilled soil, stale nutmeg, pencil shavings, nondescript dried herbs.

If red Burgundy is your thing then this Russian River pinot is not for you. But if you find merit in its Burgundian stepchild then slap down $30 and enjoy this fruit globbed refreshing juice. My main complaint: this wine has no backend taste. Front and middle palate simply glorious...and then, nothing. So, putting a couple away to see where it lands in the mid ‘20s.
