2008 WesMar Oehlman Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc.. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Fresh berry fruit shows up right after opening, but fades over time when the bouquet is dominated by aromas of cola, seasoned and spicy oak, leather, dried cherry and earthiness. The juicy mid weight cherry core is oak infused and clothed in modest tannins. More fruit sap than the 2006 and 2007 bottlings and a little more structure, but I still prefer the 2007 wine. Drink now to 2022. Reviewed February 13, 2017
