2009 Shane The Charm Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 100 cases, $32. · Deep, dark reddishpurple color in the glass. Slightly reduced initially, evolving to reveal shy aromas of dark fruits, cut flowers and smoky oak. Fat on the palate with a full load of plum and cassis flavor with a noticeable oak accent. Lacks acidity, seemingly a bit flabby with a slight bitterness on the finish. Decent.
