2006 J. Keverson Labyrinth Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 210 cases, $38. · The wine leads off with sweet oak, blackberry jam, a leafiness and a hint of alcohol. Blackberries, dark cherries, tar, blood orange and vanilla carry the medium-weighted and noticeably oaked flavors. The textural impression is soft and clean and the finish has zingy acidity. I thought it was just decent, but my wife like it a lot. Reviewed February 18, 2008
