Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
Rated 91 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. ?Highly perfumed aromas of fresh red berries, potpourri and minerals, with a hint of smokiness in the background.? On the palate, intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and a hint of white pepper.? Very precise pinot with strong finishing lift and cut and mineral-driven persistence. ?Quite nervy, in a style that reminds me a lot of the Sonoma Coast."
