2012 Loring Wine Company Russell Family Vineyard Paso Robles Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., $50, screwcap. · Very dark purple color in the glass. Aromas of black raspberry, black currant, tar, cigar box and clay loam. Full-bodied with a load of very ripe, dark berry fruit. Big, big, big, almost syrupy with a velvety presence and a charge of oak on the finish. A brute of a Pinot Noir that lacks appeal. Score: 85. Reviewed December 18, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Loring Wine Company Russell Family Vineyard Paso Robles Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 175 cases, $40. The grapes come from a cool and westerly vineyard. · This wine has an arsenal of red cherry and earthy aromas and flavors with noticeable oak in the background throughout. The texture is soft and sexy. There are moderate tannins on the long finish which smooth out with a couple hours of air time. Reviewed May 7, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »
