2006 Barnett Vineyard Tina Marie Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 1180 cases, $34. Fiona and Hal Barnett founded their family estate on the top of Spring Mountain in 1983. This wine is sourced from the Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley and is composed of Dijon clones. The winemaker is David Tate. · Medium reddish-purple color. Aromas of cherries, Asian spice and oak char. Cherry-driven flavors that are moderately mouth-filling. A lovely wine with charm but showing a bit too much oak for my taste.
