2009 Windsor Sonoma Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., 496 cases, $30. · Medium garnet color in the glass. Lovely and complex nose offering bright scents of black cherries, black raspberries, spice, pine and sandalwood. A blast of cherries saturates the mid palate maintaining an impressive intensity on the long finish. A touch of cola, pine, oak and roasted nut flavors add interest. Moderate intensity with fine dry tannins. Plenty of Pinot pleasure at the right price. Source: website and retail. Very good. Reviewed July 1, 2011 ARTICLE »
