Scherrer Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Wine Spectator: A delicate, fleshy style that highlights fresh, juicy raspberry and wild berry flavors, with subtle anise and light earth shadings. Shows a loamy edge and a lingering watermelon and cherry aftertaste. Drink now. 700 cases made. (9/30/16)

Since our small winery’s first vintage in 1991, our goal has been to create handcrafted, full-flavored wines that express the personality of the unique Sonoma County vineyards where they are grown. Fred first became known for Zinfandel from his father’s Alexander Valley vineyard, and now his careful hand with Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Sonoma County has quietly gained attention and a steady following. That same attention has made Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah that exemplify the bounty of Sonoma County vineyards. Read less

Everything you want in a big Pinot from RRV. Smooth, velvety tannins with lots of spice on a delightfully long finish.

Extremely nice Pinot from Fred Scherrer. Well balanced with nice acidity, dark cherry, rhubarb, some white pepper and a very nice long finish.

Notes: Pinot Noir from Sonoma County varies in its expression according to where it is grown. This wine exhibits the sassafras character of coastal Pinot Noirs, as well as the cola of those from the area between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. Moderately structured, it has a central core of red fruits and lightly toasty oak that anchor these coastal and inland elements. It should be at its best two to six years after the vintage.
