Big Russian River Pinot. Lots of extraction. Typical ripe cherry, cola and tea. Some whole berry? Oak coming through as a vanilla note. A touch hot, but enjoyable.

Loved it. Fruity and medium bodied with good acidity. Needed to wait a little bit to open up

Bought fall 2016 at Pine Orchard, $65.99. Best California Pinot ever tried. Rather fruity, but some earthiness, and very smooth. Not hot or spicy on the finish.

2013. Stemmy and plummy as all get out. Medium bodied. Well made-as all the PH estate stuff is.-with acidity/tannins for days. Balanced and intense.

Number 2 of my 3 bottles. And this is improved over number 1 from a year ago. The initially overly fruity intro of a year ago has integrated. Its RRV all the way thru. I'll wait two years for my 3rd bottle. Cheers.

A very nice Pinot that was unfairly outmuscled last night. Jeffy, this may go down as the best last place wine in the history of wine tastings!

An elegant if not refined expression of Russian River Pinot Noir. Lots of fruit on the nose followed by flavors of raspberry, currant and just a slight hint of anise. The finish is a little peppery with some tartness that lingers very nicely. A good start to our evening.
