2008 Fritz Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

1/24/2014 - SanFranSoxFan04 Likes this wine: 91 points

I had opened one of these soon after release, did NOT like it, no notes taken at the time. Opened tonight expecting to dump it. Very pleasantly surprised, evolving nose of Forrest floor, mushroom, meat. Tastes like cherry cola. This was a gift years ago, but had I paid $25 I would be stoked.

Unlike 16 months ago, this bottle did not exhibit the young juice flavors right upon opening. It was still tight but enjoyable. Over the next 3hrs the nose on this was constantly evolving, floral, cola, chocolate, earth, perfume. Really enjoyable. A bigger style pinot than I normally drink but damn tasty.

Big coffee and vanilla flavors, a slight whiff of nail polish remover which burns the nose. Seems like a hedonistic, unbalanced Pinot.

Big old' SLH nose, a slight efferesence. Simple but yummy wine with a little more heat on the finish than I prefer.

No nose at first, very subtle. Cedar, flint, pencil lead, wet stone flavors I associate with Calera. More spicy, pepper flavors. The pepper actually overwhelmed as the tasting went on. I am a big Calera Ryan fan but felt slightly let down by this one.

Spicy nose, big rich flavor, I was not terribly impressed at first but this opened up over the hour and turned into a nice sipper.

Crystal clarity, light bodied, reminds me of Littorai. Delicate fruit and floral flavors with a slight savory characteristic, later in the tasting I got some caramel flavor. Very good.

Tested better than a previous bottle but still getting some hollow cheap juice. It improved throughout the tasting, showing some floral and tobacco notes.

Immediately after opening and running through the Soiree, I was not very pleased. Far too much cheap juice flavors. 3hrs later and its starting to come around. Tart cherry, cranberry, tobacco, forrest floor and something candy like. Good.
