2005 Papapietro Perry Leras Family Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 950 cases, $46. This vineyard is located off Woolsey Road and is planted to Pommard, 115, 667 and 777 clones of Pinot Noir. The wine was aged for 11 months in 50% new Francois Freres oak. Lovely hi-tone cherry aromas. · Flavors are cherry driven with attractive side notes of herbs, cocoa, cola, spice and a pinch of oak. Modest in weight and light on its feet, this wine oozes finesse and charm. Well crafted and recommended. Reviewed January 20, 2008
