As this wine is poured into your glass, you will notice its beautiful, dark ruby red color. The first impression starts in the nose with intense blackberry fruit aromas, cola and cassis jam followed by a touch of vanilla and tobacco accented with hints of baking spice and red licorice. The wine is richly textured and balanced with a beautiful brightness. Flavors of black cherry, tobacco and sweet barrel spice shine throughout. Fine tannins round out the long, smooth finish. Pairs well with beef, lamb, mushrooms, and root vegetables.
Juicy tones of black fruit and strawberry highlight this well-made, earthy wine, which was fermented in tank before spending nearly a year in oak. Medium in weight, yet dark and brooding, it shows secondary notes of cola, baking spice and vanilla.
The 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River is pale to medium ruby-purple colored and vibrantly scented of red cherries, raspberries and chocolate box with a touch of dried herbs. Medium-bodied, soft, juicy and offering plenty of straightforward red fruit flavors, it gives a refreshing finish.
