2006 Brogan Cellars Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir

15.1% alc., $65. · Moderately light reddishpurple in color with a slight orange tinge to the rim in the glass. The wine shows unappealing scents of cooked fruit, herbal oak and leather sole. The ripe black cherry, cassis, and sassafras flavors are flat. The loss of color, aroma and flavor indicate a prematurely oxidized wine. An unsatisfactory bad bottle. Reviewed September 8, 2010
