2004 Brogan Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.1% alc., 235 cases, $45. Aged in 45% new French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Darkly colored. Aromas of black cherries, wild berries and mocha java draw you in. Rich and vivid flavors of cassis and black plums with a touch of anise, spice and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and well integrated. A hedonist’s delight with a slight syrupy texture but not cloying or jammy. Impressive persistence on the finish. Very good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
