Benovia Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2011
This low yielding vintage provided the raw materials to produce a truly outstanding Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Aromas are clearly dominated by bright red fruit tones of Bing cherry and red raspberry, while black fruits dominate on the palette. The bright aromas expand and give way to candied orange peel and East Asian spice notes. On the palate the wines juicy mouthfeel is supported by centered acidity building with intensity through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. Tannins are beautifully proportioned and provide backbone to the wines sweet middle and delicate earthy finish.
Founded by Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane, and winemaker partner Mike Sullivan, Benovia Winery farms 71.67 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel from estate vineyards in the Russian River Valley.
