2007 Zepaltas W.E. Bottoms Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 97 cases, $47. Clones 114, 115, 667 and 777. To be released February, 2009. · Demure aromas of cherries, dried flowers, herbs and oak. Appealing core of wild berries and edible flowers with svelte tannins, admirable finesse and good lift on the persistent finish. A feminine wine that is light on its feet, soft and silky and quite likable. Currently not as showy as the excellent 2006 version of this wine, but time in the bottle will change this.
