2010 george Vintage VIII Ceremonial Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc.,195 cases, $60. · Moderately light reddish-purple hue in the glass. Beguiling dark, deep cherry perfume. A clear standout that seduces from the get go, offering moderately rich flavors of black cherries, red plums, and cola wrapped in fur coat tannins. Softly textured with bright acidity and admirable length on the refreshing finish that draws you back for another sip. A ripper. Reviewed April 4, 2012
