2007 Papapietro Perry Mukaida Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 218 cases, $75. · Restrained but pleasing deep red fruit aromas and flavors that build in intensity in the glass. The fruit has a distinctive tropical bent. Impressively soft and smooth in the mouth. Oak is evident but not intrusive. I had the feeling that this wine might be the best in the lineup with another year in the bottle. Reviewed May 7, 2009
