This is a little tight on the nose with clean, focused oak aromas balanced by cut plum and black cherry fruit. There's a lot of wine here, though it's not at all heavy. Gentle mocha shadings greet the palate with a nicely integrated structural elements supporting the black cherry and lightly plummy fruit on the palate. There are some strawberry yogurt notes on the back end along with some peppery wood spice that draws out the strawberry candy and black cherry-toned finish. Not rustic but perhaps a bit of a throw back style. Has its appeal, though. 89pts

The color and flavor are both dark and rich. Fruits on the palate are strawberries and cherries, but both are dark, very ripe, even a little bruised. Wood provides a sweet background of vanilla and almond. Tannins are sweet and old, acids mild to match.

A delicious Pinot Noir to drink now. Soft and savory, it shows appealing raspberry, cherry and spice flavors, accented with the vanilla and toast of oak. Defines Russian River Pinot Noir in its easiest form.

The 2010 Pinot Noir is full of Russian River exuberance. Juicy dark cherries, cola, flowers and new leather burst from the glass as this racy, polished Pinot shows off its undeniably appealing, sexy personality. Medium in body, the 2010 possesses gorgeous mid-palate pliancy and a generous finish laced with sweet floral and spice notes. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2016.


Winemaker's Notes:

A little lighter, without being lean; a little crisper, without being tart; a little more fruit driven, without being distracting; with a round, soft mouthfeel, and less oak and alcohol than you often find in California Pinot Noirs.
