2008 Davis Bynum Pinot Noir Russian River Valley CA 14.9% $25

Full on spicy, with a rich, black cherry, black raspberry, cola and spicy oak nose. Richly sweet and smooth, this is why people love California Pinot. The fruit is pretty big and bold, but fresh and fruity with a spiced black cherry core. The acidity adds nice support and the tannins are rich if a little fuzzy, not breaking through the fruit but breaking up the smoothness of the fruit. Finishes with some cola and root beer notes. This is bold and rich, really doing a fine job of what California Pinot Noir is all about. It does lack some complexity and nuance. 89pts
