I just slightly prefer this wine to the '09 Twomey Anderson Valley Pinot. The Russian River Pinot has a beautifully forward nose of red rose petals, candied cherry, raspberry, pine resin, and deep, sweet spiciness. Round and silky in the mouth, full of flavor but light on its feet. Lingering, spicy, berry-infused finish. Very elegant and classy-feeling wine. I'd be inclined to drink this one in its youth. - HK 2013-12-25
