Dry River Pinot Noir 2008
"Deep ruby-purple colored, the 2008 Pinot Noir provides intense red currant, cherry and black raspberry aromas with a pleasant bit of funk plus subtle hints of spice box, nutmeg, earth, red flowers and a whiff of tobacco. Crisp, medium bodied with fine tannins, there’s plenty of flavor concentration leading to a long finish of berry fruits and minerals. It should be in its prime from 2011 to 2016."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "Taut and reticent with flavors of dark fruit, minerals and menthol lurking underneath."--NY Times 9/28/11.

Food Pairings for Dry River Pinot Noir
This Pinot is crimson with a purple aspect and is similar in density to our ’07 wine. The nose seems quite fragrant and pure – flowers, cherries/black fruit, pot pourri and black olives with an underlying sweetness. The alcohol is approx 13%, and initially it may appear to be a light wine until the flavour persistence persuades one that this impression derives from elegance. The flavours are in the floral/cherry range with Black Doris plum, black olives and crushed walnuts accompanied by a juicy astringency and a delicate lushness.
