2006 Skewis Salzberger-Chan Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 200 cases, $42.From a 3-acre vineyard planted in 1997 in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation. Dijon clone 115. Harvest Brix 24.9ยบ. · Scents of dark cherries, oak char and spearmint. Bright Bing cherry in the mouth with a nice touch of spice. Some oak char carries through in the background but dissipates some with swirling (should integrate with further aging of the wine). Appealing finesse and balance. Reviewed June 5, 2009
