Deep ruby in color offering aromas of strawberry,ripe cherry, forest floor and underbrush. The palate is dusty with cherry, blackberry, and cola. Lively acidity and a long finish. Tasted twice 12 months apart.

I wish the rest of Russian River Pinot was like this. Reminded me of Burgundy.

Tight and restrained when opened, chilled down to 60• degrees , after twenty minutes great expression of black cherries and raspberry, with just a hint of strawberry. Opened slowly, I feel this great bottle needs another 6 months to evolve and express itself. I give this future star a solid 93 Rating. CB

This stuff always impresses. Just the perfect tinge of oak balances the intense, perfectly ripe Pinot fruit.
