This wine continues to improve with age. Now, it is ready to enjoy fully by the second day opened. On the darker side for Pinot Noir, closest to purple, enticingly aromatic black cherry, richly fruity in the mouth with added black plum, caressing, acidic enough to be refreshing, tannic enough not to be flabby, exceedingly delicious throughout, and finishes seamless and long.
At the $16 we paid, this wine deserves to be your go-to, every day Pinot Noir. Features the lovely and delicious black and red cherry fruit that Russian River does so well. Underneath that fruit topping is a bright and refreshing acidity and a drying tannin that make the wine well structured and excellent with a huge range of foods. Each day opened, the wine gets a little darker and deeper. On the firth day opened, the last two inches were terrific. Best way to drink this wine is to open the bottle 2 days in advance.
