2009 Ketcham Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 901 cases, $38. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of well-spiced Bing cherries and rose petals. Soft and elegant on the palate, with moderately dense flavors of black cherries, Hoison sauce, and cola, enrobed in fine-grain tannins, leaving a little heat in its wake on the moderately long finish. Good. Reviewed November 2, 2011
