2003 WesMar Olivet Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 162 cases, $35. · Intense perfume of cherry liquor with hints of oak, spice and smoke. Plush and generous on the palate but falls short of jammy, featuring dark cherry flavors, hints of cola and Asian spice, restrained tannins and a velvety texture. This wine has surrendered none of its fruit strength and complexity over time and has several good years ahead. A seductive wine of great charm. Reviewed January 28, 2009
