    June 3, 2015 - solid understated pinot. decent length, solid texture and secondary flavors, lacked a bit of presence and performs better accompanying a meal.

    March 19, 2015 - Gave this around 45 min of air before serving. Dark garnet color. Classic RRV nose showing bing cherry, black tea & cola. Concentrated dark red fruit. Moderate acid & supple tannins. Very fruit forward, but clean & fresh. Easy to enjoy, not overly complex.

    February 25, 2015 - Notes of RC Cola. Pleasant for during the week, but not to my liking these days. Good fruit, RC Cola, pleasant nose of red fruit and earth.

    January 26, 2015 - This wine is still very vibrant. Enough acidity to compliment the fruit. The depth of the finish is amazing. A hint of some spice in the nose. I have been tasting through RRV 2006-2007's Pinot Noir in my cellar and this one really stood out. Pity it was last bottle from what was once a case. This wine could still benefit with some more age. Impressive to say the least.

    January 24, 2015 - Surprisingly young fresh and vibrant, tart cranberry, red cherry and red raspberry dominated the palate with touches of the vanilla and cola to compliment. A beautiful Russian River Pinot in the typical Russian River style.
