2008 C. Donatiello Middle Reach Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 86 cases, $28. To be offered to the winery’s wine club in the fall of 2010. Primarily sourced from Maddie’s Vineyard. Aged 10 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Very shy aromas of crushed red strawberries and raspberries, leading to a medium weighted cherry and berry core which has some persistence on the fruity finish. Needs more time in the bottle. Good Reviewed July 15, 2010
