2005 Scherrer Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $32. This wine comes from vineyards located in both Goldridge Series soils producing red fruit and orange peel components and clay soils offering deep black cherry flavors. Unfined and unfiltered. · Potent aromas of ripe cherries, cola, caramel and baking spices that are intoxicating and never fade or tire in the glass. Tasty black cherry flavor with soft tannins, well-integrated oak, and a tangerine peel tang on the refreshing finish. A wine with seamless texture that is immensely satisfying. Like a bimbo that draws you in with perfume and seduces you with silk. Fred Scherrer knows Pinot and his wines are always sensibly priced. The best Russian River Valley bottling ever for Scherrer.
