2006 Halleck Vineyards Three Sons Cuvee Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., 1,300 cases, $42. This wine is a blend of several vineyards in the neighborhood of the Halleck estate vineyard. The name pays homage to the Halleck‚Äôs three sons, Conner 14, Adam 13, and Quinn 10. · The lightest in reddish-purple color of the lineup. Heady black cherry and new-sawn wood aromas leading to a dark fruit profile enhanced with herbs, oak and cinnamon spice. Silky on the palate and briskly acidic on the finish. The lightest wine in the lineup but not a weakling by any stretch of the imagination. While the other wines brood, this frisky youngster is offering considerable pleasure now.
