Wine Review: This wine finished fourth in our most recent blind Pinot Noir tasting. This dark red wine opens with a faint blackberry bouquet. This light bodied wine is soft, has light plum and cherry flavors, lacks structure, but is very tasty. Many of the panel member thought this would be a nice wine for Thanksgiving. The finish is dry and brief. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "Our goal is to truly capture the Russian River terroir in the glass. The 2005 vintage gave us aromas of black cherry and blackberry, with hints of cola and black licorice. The flavors center on dark lush fruit and spice, which provide rich texture, broad, structured tannins and a lingering, juicy finish." Elissa Stackhouse, Winemaker
