Inman Family Pinot Noir Thorn Road 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big and spicy on the nose, with a deep olive wood briar accent to the rich blackberry fruit that’s topped with nuanced floral and lightly smoky aromas. This is smooth and moderately rich in the mouth, with a layer of baby fat covering the fine-grained tannins and supporting acidity. A nice tart, almost black cherry note dominates the palate and drifts off on the finish, which does show a bit of heat. A bit more than I’m used to from Inman. 89 points

Established in 2000 with the planting of our organically farmed Olivet Grange Vineyard, Inman Family Wines is the result of Simon and Kathleen Inman's love of Pinot Noir and the soil that produces it. Our wines are produced exclusively with wine grapes from the Russian River Valley and made in an acid-driven, balanced style that is best enjoyed with your next meal. Our wine, although inspired by the complex yet subtle wines of Europe, are a unique expression of the Russian River Valley. We employ winemaking techniques that preserve nuance and highlight the unique qualities of our source vineyards. Harvesting fruit weeks before our neighbors and, more often than not, relying on the naturally occurring yeasts from the vineyard for fermentations. We believe making world class wine is a full circle process that relies equally on healthy soil, natural winemaking and sustainable business practices. Read less
