2006 Brogan Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $45. Aged 11 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · A cherry bombast in the glass. Mildly syrupy and thick on the palate with flavor bites of spice and anise adding interest. The tannins have melded and lively acidity lifts the finish. Prototypical Russian River Valley Pinot. Can drink now. Good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
