Impressive, boldly flavored Russian River Pinot. Very full in the mouth without being jammy or overbearing, the flavors are highlighted by rich, earthy cherry and raspberry Pinot fruit along with a nice dose of dried roses. While rich, it is still fairly linear at this young age. With a little more complexity (i.e., another year or two in the bottle) this wine will be outstanding. I'm anxious to try some of the other Holdredge wines. - HK 2011-09-16
