2007 Scherrer Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $32. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely appointed nose with aromas of black cherries, dried rose petals, frambiose and Moroccan spices. The aromas are strikingly fruity and become more spiced over time in the glass. Rich core of black cherries, dark strawberries, black raspberries, with baking spice and herbs in the background, framed by supple tannins. The flamboyant finish clings to the palate. A voluptuous wine from a superb vintage that has staying power in the glass and is hard to resist. Source: website, mailing list, retail. Very good. Reviewed July 1, 2011
