2008 Papapietro Perry Mukaida Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.77, TA 0.611, 195 cases, $75. The 8 best barrels from Peters Vineyard. Aged 11 months in 90% new and 10% 1-year old French oak. · An earthy and savory nose leads to a charge of cherry and berry fruit in the mid palate persisting on the generous finish. A gentle, elegant wine that packs a punch. Will benefit from more time in the cellar. Very good. Reviewed April 11, 2011
