2006 J. Keverson Labyrinth Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $30. Sourced from the Labyrinth Vineyard farmed by the Masons at EMTU Wines (see feature in this issue). · There is a tasty core of black cherry, raspberry and cassis here but the wine is dominated by oak. Too bad, because the wine has a charming elegance. A Gold Medal winner at the 2008 Sonoma Harvest Fair Wine Competition indicating the wine has fans. Reviewed January 1, 2009
