2005 Dovetail Indindoli Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.2% alc., 130 cases, $52. This vineyard is planted to Dijon clones 115 and 667 over less than two acres. The wine was aged sur lies for 10 months in a combination of French and Hungarian barrels, 50% new. · The nose is redolent with super ripe, jammy fruit leaning toward raisin with a little spearmint. The flavors carry on the theme with sweet darker fruits, raisin and spice. The alcohol is well integrated and the peach-skin tannins create a soft texture. This bottle may have been slightly oxidized. A wine of great appeal to fruit hedonists. Reviewed September 10, 2007
