2006 Brogan Cellars Lingenfelder Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.3% alc., $60. From a Pommard clone block. Aged 11 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Opens slowly in the glass, revealing intense crushed berry, black cherry and dark chocolate aromas. Rich and toasty ripe dark fruits fill the mouth with pleasure. The tannins have melded and the wine is all silk and satin. The intense fruit, prominent oak and high alcohol all come together in harmony. Very good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
