2005 WesMar Vintners Reserve Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., Magnum. · Moderately lightreddish purple color with slightest rim bricking. Intriguing aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, old book, damp oak, earthy flora, and cigar smoke. Noticeably fresh mid weight flavors of black cherry, black currant, Crimini mushrooms, and tobacco. The wine has great appeal with a good acid verve and finishing presence, although the fruit is slightly dry and the wine finishes with slight astringency. This Pinot has definitely earned its Reserve badge. Drink now to 2022. Reviewed February 13, 2017
