[$15] Spice and strawberry, with earthy undertones; balanced. Superior to the more expansive Carneros bottling.
External Reviews for Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Black cherry is the strongest flavor, with black tea adding yet another element to this great wine. A hint of cola comes through on the soft and pleasing finish.
Plenty of vanilla and cedary oak to overcome, but the ripe plum and black cherry flavors are up to the task. A hint of lavender and nutmeg adds a tasty dimension, and itrsquo;s hard to find a better value in Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2007.
This is Syrah-like Pinot, rather heavy, but good. Itrsquo;s full-bodied, with good tannins and acids and is balanced and dry, with a touch of oak. Certainly shows off its California sunshine in the sweet finish, which is a swirl of cherries, blackberries and raspberries.
