2009 Honest Weight Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 100 cases, $29.99. Produced by McNeil & Sons, Cloverdale. Secret vineyard source. Wente, Swan clones. Aged in 255 new and 75% once-used French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Reserved aromas of brandied cherries, black currants, and baking spice. Tasty core of very ripe cherry and berry fruits with complimentary toasty oak in the background, finishing with a grilled fruit and hickory character. Elegantly styled. Much better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle showing less oak, more vibrant fruit and more attractive spice notes. Good (+). Reviewed June 24, 2012 ARTICLE »
