This is my fave from @inmanfamilywine - sour / sweet cherry, exotic spice on the nose, great finish. Could drink this all night long.

Juicy raspberry, black cherry and strawberry. Kind of like cola with a lip smacking, Dr. Pepper quality. Good and very classic Russian River Pinot.

Love the light rustic color. Strawberry, cherry, cinnamon spice, toast.

Limpid pale garnet red. Earthy sous-bois notes complement aromas of ripe black plums, red berries, and hibiscus. Plummy on the palate with a greenish cast, there are flavors of beets, blood, and black fruits. This wine is bigger, more brooding and earthy than Inman's Olivet Grange Vineyard Pinot Noir (2010, tasted recently). It's the yang to that wine's yin; both are wonderful. 13.8% abv | $68 (sample)

Found this for a really good price at K&L not bad. More character than I expected.

A. Fine. Pinot. Noir. 2011 Thorn Ridge opened June 21st, 2017. Lov-ly. Floral mushroom, cool climate delicate fresh tanned leather. There's an herbal note that is that 6th gear in a 5 gear race car. The still present tannin structure fades gently. This is serious shit people. This wine makes the argument that cold, foggy, Burgundian-style summers make. The. Finest. Pinot. Noir.
