Holdredge Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Selection Massale 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very perfumed on the nose with layers of sweet spices, violets, ginseng, smoke, a little licorice and pollen. In the mouth this is a little candied, delivering sweet raspberries and maraschino cherry flavors up front in a polished, plump, easy drinking style. There’s good length here and the fruit flavors do add a bit of a darker profile on the finish, but bright acidity keeps this fresh. There are moments when this seems a bit heavy and dull with all the fruit here. Not exactly my style, but certainly well done. A blend of nine distinctly different clones. 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.
