2009 Pellegrini Family Vineyards Olivet Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., $28. · Moderately light reddish-purple hue in the glass. A mix of red and black stone fruits and berries on the nose and palate with an underpinning of earth, anise and leaf, reflecting nicely this unique terroir and clonal combination. Soft in the mouth, finishing with a dry, mildly tannic finish. More enticing over time in the glass. Good (+). Reviewed November 2, 2011
