2011 R Sisters Vineyard Napa Carneros Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., $22. A relative gave me this bottle to taste. Produced and bottled by Jeff Runquist of JR Wines. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose offers cooked fruit, BBQ grill and smoky oak aromas. Better on the palate with commendable balance, but the well-ripened fruit has a prune and root beer theme. Because of the relatively low ABV, I wouldn’t expect over ripe fruit so this probably is a prematurely oxidized bottle. Score: N/R. Reviewed November 5, 2015 ARTICLE »
