2005 WesMar Olivet Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 308 cases, $37. The final bottling from Olivet Lane for WesMar. · Dark reddish-purple color. Complex aromatic profile of dark red cherries, berries, baking spice, herbs, oak char and barnyard. Tasty dark red stone fruits with a burly, earthy edge. Nicely composed and balanced with mild ripe tannins and a citrus peel tang on the lively finish. Not the fruit intensity of the previous vintages and more in touch with the Olivet Lane Estate bottlings by Pellegrini. Reviewed January 28, 2009
