2007 Halleck Vineyard The Farm Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., $55. 100% destemmed, 5-day cold soak, whole berry fermentation in 5-ton fermentation tanks for 12 days, aged 9 months in 30% new French oak. Clone 777. · Interesting aromas of dark red fruits, rose bush, prickly pear, oak char and a little funk. A dark fruit-driven wine with sides of herbs and oak. There is bright acidity on the finish which falls off rapidly. This wine just doesn’t do much for me and I get the impression that it has not completely come together inviting a revisit in 6 months.
