2005 Halleck Three Sons Cuvee Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 750 cases, $38. This wine is sourced from three vineyards: The Farm, Hallberg, and Hawk’s Roost. Clones are Dijon 115 and 777. The wine was aged in 30% new French oak for 10 months. · The aromatics are enticing with notes of cherry and toast and a kiss of anise. Light to medium in body, there is a well-constructed Bing cherry core of fruit all wrapped in a satiny sheet-like texture. There are some cola highlights also - more Pepsi than Coke. With laser-like clarity and balance, this Pinot is flat-out terrific. Reviewed April 30, 2007
