2006 Adobe Road Winery O’Neel Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.3% alc., 250 cases, $48 · Gregarious nose bursting with rich black cherries, well-toasted oak and oak spice.

2004 Herrerias Herrerias Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $24. · This is not a terribly complex wine, but is perfectly fine. Cherries are foremost in the nose and flavors. There is a little funk (what I call dirty diaper but in a good way) among the aromas. Reviewed January 15, 2007 ARTICLE »
