Arista Winery Mononi Vineyard Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with dark cherry and rose petal and underlying spicy cedar notes. Dark berry flavors immediately greet the palate. Persistent cherry and plum flavors are interwoven with subtle tannins that have been gently extracted from the 17 months spent in French oak barrels. The mouth feel is silky, lush.

First bottle was bad, all like a nose and mouthful of pennies. She opened another bottle and this was very nice! A nice rustic pinot, but not at all lacking in finesse. Nose of rose petal, dark cherry and blackberry with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and cedar. Blackberry jam and raspberry fruit flavors framed by lively acidity. - Tasted at winery 4/21/10
