Wind Racer 2012 "Russian River Valley" Pinot Noir, CA

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (91)
Price: $50
KWG Score: 90.5
No. Professional Ratings: 2
This opaque and very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from the russina River is very nice. It opens with a mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly opaque and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a plum and minerality blend with hints of blueberry, cherry-cola and oak. The finish is dry and it flavors and moderate tannins fade away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken
