Eric Kent Wine Cellars Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Stiling Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Eric Kent 06 Pinot Noir<br/><br/><strong>Tasting Notes:</strong><br/>Dark ruby in color with a bright raspberry nose and a hint of forest floor - did I actually write that? - sorry, but sometimes its hard to find the proper words: an elusive combination of pine needles, faint eucalyptus, dry leaves, moist earth. . . I hope thats a smidge more helpful. All followed by fresh and lively strawberry, cola nut and touch of nutmeg on the palate with moderate tannins and good acidity to see them through to the lingering finish. <br/><br/>Displays the expressive fruit reminiscent of our 04 Stiling combined with the elegance and greater restraint of the 05. <br/><br/><br/><strong>Drinking Windows:</strong><br/>Prime drinking: <em>late</em> 2008 through 2011<br/>Graceful ageability: 2013, perhaps longer<br/><br/><br/>

We hope this same attention to quality is reflected in the stunning art featured on our labels. Read less
