C. Donatiello Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of spicy black pepper, dried cranberries, cola, mocha and cherries. On the palate, bright and clean with deeply layered flavors of raspberry and rhubarb which give way to flavors of cinnamon and chocolate. The finish is long and clean with balanced tannins, acidity and oak. Alcohol 13.5%.

This 09 is fine. A little carbonic upon opening. But that dissipates. Then elegant.
