The nose hits you the second you pop the cork. Standard Pinot lightness with a creaminess reminiscent of zinfandel. This is the ultimate $20 red that can satisfy just about anybody. Not too fruity, but still a nice huge cherry finish. Definitely a dinner party pleaser

A typical Pinot Noir from Russian River, medium ruby/garnet in color. Medium intensity of developing raspberry, red cherry, candy and bubblegum nose. Dry and medium acidity, smooth and delicate soft tannin but high alcohol content. Medium body and intensity, similar palate matching with the nose, medium length. Good quality and ready to drink but can keep.

Cherry and cola explode in the aroma, with hints offorest floor in the background. On the palate, dark ripe berries round out themiddle which are followed by notes of cardamom spice and vanilla on the finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit was harvested at night to ensure cool temperatures when delivered to the winery. On arrival, the fruit was de-stemmed and put in open top 5 ton fermentation tanks. The fruit was chilled to 45 degrees F and held to soak for 5 days before fermentation was allowed to start, thus insuring good color and fruit extraction. Wine was pressed to French oak barrels where they underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 14 months in the barrels.
