2006 Adobe Road Winery O’Neel Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.3% alc., 250 cases, $48 · Gregarious nose bursting with rich black cherries, well-toasted oak and oak spice. The earth-dusted and oak-imbibed dark stone fruits are discreetly concentrated with tannins that are soft and supple. The balance is admirable with alcohol that is well integrated.
