2008 Brogan Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $50. · Moderate garnet hue in the glass. Very intense perfume of cherries with a hint of sandalwood and oak. Delicious cherry pie core with a touch of tar and herbs. Discreetly rich with restrained tannins and a refreshing finish. The most forward wine in the 2008 lineup. Very good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
