Mia's Playground Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2007

Member Review by laceyW:

OK, I like this wine, but it isn't my favorite California Pinot Noir. I tend to prefer pinot noir from the Santa Rita Hills area. But this is interesting. First glance, garnet in color, not the prettiest face in the bar, but not bad. Decent legs. First sniff, Cherries, cola, earthy, reminds me of my grand-pa's living room and he smoked cigars, so maybe that's what I am smelling. First taste, salami....huh? Yup salami, cherries and cranberries, very very herbal, BIG in the mouth, not a light Pinot. Definitely lingers, but it's nice. After I let it breathe a bit, that salami quality waned, but this wine still remained very earthy.
