2004 Brogan Cellars Lingenfelder Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 75 cases, $48. Aged 11 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Blend of Pommard and Martini blocks. · Moderate reddishpurple color in the glass. The nose is highlighted by purple fruits with a dash of soy, tea and purple roses. Very tasty big-boned core of cassis and black plum flavors with oak playing a supporting role. Nicely composed with a smooth texture, flannel tannins and a big fruit-driven finish. Drinking perfectly now. Very good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
