2010 Paul Mathew TNT Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.81, TA 0.56, 188 cases, $45. Released November 1, 2012. This Green Valley vineyard was planted in 1999 and 2000 with clones 114, 115, 667 and 777 on Riparia Gloire rootstock in Goldridge soil. Aged 10 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of berry jam on toast. Mouth filling, hearty flavors of black cherries and black raspberries implode on the mid palate with aplomb, lingering with a cherry and sassafras driven finish that is memorable. My notes say, “This is really good.” Fine the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Reviewed December 8, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2006 Paul Mathew Vineyards TNT Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., $34. Crafted by owner and winemaker Mat Gustafson. Wild yeast and MLF bacteria. · Ripe aromas and flavors of black cherries and dark red berries, herbed meats and black currants. Tasty with a good acid grip and admirable balance. Would enjoy this wine more if the fruit didn’t veer to far to the ultra ripe side. Reviewed May 7, 2009 WINERY » ARTICLE »
