2009 Joelle Amber Ridge Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $39. Crafted under the direction of Chris Winslow. · Moderately light reddish-purple hue in the glass. Bright scent of crushed red berries with a touch of forest floor and barnyard. Soft and appealing on the palate with a delicious core of mixed Pinot fruits, supple tannins, and a pleasing hint of oak on the generous and persistent finish. Very good. Reviewed July 23, 2011
