2007 Forchini Vineyards & Winery Proprietor’s Reserve Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $26. From the estate River Terrace Vineyard. The winemaker is James F. Forchini. · Complex nose featuring scents of red fruits, dried rose petals, spice, underbrush and balsam. Ripe dark red stone fruits with added interest from flavors of black tea and grilled meats. Moderately rich with some ragged tannins and a dry cherry-laden finish. Good.
