2007 Papapietro Perry Elsbree Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 937 cases, $49. This vineyard consists of a field blend of about 20 clones on multiple rootstocks. Farmed by Chuck Elsbree. · A very complex and alluring nose displaying red plum and red current fruit with a sniff of cactus flower, roasted nuts, herbs and oak vanillin. A demure wine that is packed with flavors of spiced stone fruits and berries. Youthful tannins are evident and there is good grip, even a slight tartness to the refreshing and lingering finish. Still not showing all of its charms. I really like this wine and salute its uniqueness. Reviewed May 7, 2009
