Deeply saturated texture of sappy black cherry and raspberry, classic RRV baked pie and floral aromas. Some pomegranate and blood orange flavors brighten up the mid palate along with Asian spice, mint and a bit of mushroom on the finish. Oak and tannins are very well integrated, revealing a dense core of somewhat candied fruit. Acidity is soft but provides a bit of lift for the weighty fruit that reveals its origins from the warm microclimate of the Middle Reach. Lush, dense, succulent. Everything RRV Pinot Noir should be.

These wines make me happy the same way that “fruit by the foot” fruit snacks made me happy as a kid. They show bright red fruit that excites the palate and the mouthwatering textures carry waves of bright acidity that allow a multitude of flavors to burst, over and over again. Soft but complex, fruit focused but controlled and oh so delicious.

God there are times when CA Pinots are sooooo good. At 7 years the young fruit has mellowed but its still kind of got a candy flavor.

Bright and fruity. Rich aroma and subtle body with long finish proves this will get better with aging in bottle.

Really nice for the vintage. I usually like my CA Pinot from cold years with the barnyard funk slider maxed.
