Five Rivers Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A unique nose with rhubarb, violets and cardamom with hibiscus flowers and nice, spicy undertones. Tangy bright cherries, hibiscus nectar and a strong acid backbone follow the taste of wild strawberries. Intense, structured and complex.

Five Rivers Winery:
Throughout literature, in both modern and ancient times, there have been five basic elements that give life on the planet. Our wine, Five Rivers, takes its name from these five elements which shape our vineyard and enliven our wines. Our vibrant red goddesses, the flowing icons of our labels, embody these elements. The Goddesses of Air, Fire, Earth, Time and Water serve as our inspiration and are representation of a world just waiting to be discovered.

A light pinot. Very fruity, mainly raspberry, cherry with some strawberry. Not sophisticated, but pleasant and interesting to drink. A good companion to lighter food, fresh pasta with fresh tomatoes or shrimp or salmon.

Very surprising for the price. Would definitely purchase again. Paid $35 at restaurant price but unable to locate in liquor stores since. Buy it if u can find it.

I found the raspberry and cherry notes, and imagined vanilla in the finish.

Great Pinot for the price, good fruit, little light on the finish, but I love the earthiness it has. Great all occasions wine.

Vintage: 2008 11/12/2010

Rating: 82/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Even with the addition of Syrah, this small, almost empty wine carries suggestions of not quite ripe strawberries and something cooked to its aromas-in a way that reminds of old-fashioned jug wine. It is stiff and stilted on the palate, tastes of cheapness and will charm no one.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
