Wine Description

Our 2005 Russian River Pinot Noir is a blend of five vineyards; Cohn, Koplen, Amber Ridge, Ketcham and Castaldi. All of these vineyards lie in the middle to northern Russian River Valley. The style is deep and rich with a velvety texture that is prominent from start to finish. We recommend drinking this wine between 2008 and 2013.

    Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 132, May/June 2007. ($45) Medium red. Jammy raspberry and cola aromas complicated by mocha, red licorice and an exotic hint of peach pit. Sweet and velvety in the mouth, with creamy raspberry and plum preserve flavors and good heft. The weighty, round finish features a clingy red fruit preserve quality. I'd opt for drinking this on the young side.
