2005 Willowbrook Estate Grown Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 300 cases, $34. The 3-acre estate vineyard is planted to Dijon clones. Morning fog, warm daily sun, and cooling ocean breezes allow excellent fruit development. · Funky, shroom nose with cranberry, cherry and rhubarb notes. The fruit is muted and light in weight with herbal overtones. The balance is fine. Seems to be in a dumb phase. Reviewed September 17, 2007
