Typical for the varietal, it shows a semi opaque light purple color in the glass. The nose is stunning- cherries, cinnamon, blackberry. On the palate this wine is fruity, New World in style but somewhat restrained. Red fruit galore, some pepper and a hint of upfront acidity. The midpalate gives me cherry jam, some cedar and an intro to the very lithe tannins. This is some lip smacking juice people, absolutely delicious with a very nice mouthfeel and great balance. The finish is medium in length, juicy with some sour cherry and mid length. For $30 this is a great Pinot from one of my favorite wine making regions, the Russian River Valley. 92 points from me and 5 stars, buy it by the case. Drink till 2030. Salut….
