Another full bodied, pure Pinot Noir from one of the Russian River's best producers. This one has a nose like a fruit and spice stew made from candied dark cherries, plum, and cinnamon. Great varietal character. Lingering finish with black fruits and licorice. Higher level of acid than that found in the Dehlinger Goldridge Vineyards Pinot, and consequently a little less silky. - HK 2000-11-12
