J Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Very perfumed violet, blueberry, cherry and plum aromas on the nose. Tart cherry and spice in the mouth with a touch of licorice and cinnamon spice. It's quite juicy and full of bright flavors, with a tartness towards the finish and just a touch of vanilla and oak flavors. 88 pts

A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

Dark, a bit sour fruited and citrussy on the nose then turning a little sweet and earthy with hints of Asian pear, wild cherry and dried rose petals. A very fine mousse greets the palate along with a hint of dill right up front. Elegant on the palate with lovely herbal shadings to the fruit which is a bit front loaded with fruit then turns nuanced and complex on the mid-palate, with nice acids that drive the moderately chaly finish, and flavors of cranberries. This is nicely rich with just a touch of spice, and a nice juxtaposition of fruit and chalky minerality. 91pts

Very yeasty on the nose with bright citrus tones and with complex hints of almost salty mineral tones, caramel, and a crisp, slightly vegetal note that recalls earthy jicama. In the mouth this is very crisp with a slight vegetal edge to the intense flavors. Rather light and elegant with solid length 90pts.

Just a fantastic California sparkler. Tight bubbles, somewhat dry on the sides but a bit of residual on the back of the tongue. This is pale pink in color with a bit of yeast on the nose.

This stop at J Wine was part of a Russian River trip! Made with grapes sourced from 14 different vineyard, this was well balanced with fruity notes of dark cherry, leather and spices. Although well made, this did not stand out. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/russian-river-j-vineyards-and-winery.html

A bit on tart side and goes well with red meat.
