2007 Papapietro Perry Peters Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 935 cases, $44. · Subdued dark fruit, exotic spice, and marzipan on the pleasant nose. Soft and smooth in the mouth with black cherry pie, red currant, cola, and roasted nut flavors. Not quite the charm of a bottle I sampled in May, 2009. POP 89, WS 91. Reviewed January 22, 2010
