2011 Pillow Rd. Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., $50. Proprietors are Pat and Anne Stotesbery, the creators of Ladera Vineyards on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. The winemaker is Jade Barrett and consulting winemaker is Karen Culler, both of whom have experience in working in notable Napa Valley wineries. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of cherries, straw and toasty oak lead to a light to mid weight core of bright cherry, cranberry and pomegranate flavors accented by savory dried herbs and spice. The fruit is backed by vibrant acidity and supple, dry tannins, and the soprano finish is flush with citrus-infused cherries. The wine displays a lack of ripeness reflective of this cool vintage. Score: 87. Reviewed March 29, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »
