2015 Satyre Wines “Aristaeus” Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 74 cases, $54. Aristaeus means “the best” and this wine is the producer’s favorite red wine expression of the vintage. Sourced from Dutton Ranch-Morelli Lane and Dutton Ranch-Manzana. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, blueberry and a hint of oak arrive slowly in the glass. Sleek in the mouth, with mid weight flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, blueberry and spice framed by lacy tannins and agreeable acidity. Considerably more expressive when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 92. Reviewed April 14, 2018
