2013 Migration Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 19,722 cases, $38. A blend of fruit from the cooler Green Valley of Russian River Valley and slightly warmer parts of the Russian River Valley. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Plenty of interest here with aromas of strawberry, red cherry, baking spice and toasty oak. The light to mid weight flavors of cherry, black raspberry, rhubarb and cola are quite enjoyable, albeit with a slightly confected tone. A solid, forward drinker with supple tannins, a silky texture, and a sweet cherry finish. Score: 89. Reviewed August 18, 2015
