2012 Wind Racer Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 1,527 cases, $50. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of ripe Bing cherry and dark strawberry leap from the glass. Full-bodied on the palate, with flavors of black cherry and cola. Silky and smooth with balanced tannins and a modest finish. This wine sports the luscious fruit typical of the Russian River Valley, but lacks the juiciness of the Anderson Valley bottling. Score: 89. Reviewed May 11, 2016
