Holdredge Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Rolling Thunder 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells quite ripe, with hints of plummy fruit and candied blueberries on the nose paired with a fine cinnamon edge and a little stemmy floral note. On entry, one senses more of an oak imprint here than with the other bottlings. The style is smooth and ripe, if a little on the softer, sweeter side of things, with lots of slightly candied black cherry fruit. There’s a nice spine of fine tannins that add some contrasting mouth grab here and persist into the long, powerful finish, which does show a bit of alcohol. Fairly intensely fruit and notably structured in this line-up. 91 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.
