2009 Graton Ridge Cellars Estate Paul Family Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $50. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Appealing aromas of fresh dark berries and cherries with hints of oak, coffee and peppercorn. Flavored with oak-kissed dark Bing cherries and dark red berries with a moderately fat, silken richness that only Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs can offer. Smooth and seamless on the palate with supple tannins and impressive cherry-driven finish. Very good. Reviewed April 4, 2012
