Holdredge Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Bucher 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little stemmy and floral on a nose that is a bit low and yet quite perfumed with a hint of peppery spice; high toned and showing a touch of oak. This is surprisingly round in the mouth and even a little slick in an appealing way, offering a broad yet transparent feel that shows nice freshness with the early hints of watermelon accenting the woodsy, wild raspberry fruit. Elegant with a fairly long finish, this is impressive but it is also fairly large-scaled in this line-up. 92 points

Holdredge Wines:
Holdredge Wines is a small, family owned and operated winery in the Russian River Valley of Healdsburg, California. We produce only small lots from vineyards we feel reflect the quality and diversity of Sonoma County's appellations. We also grow Pinot Noir and Syrah in our family's vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Both our farming practices and our winemaking philosophy emphasize a personal, hand-crafted approach.
