2014 Benovia Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $38. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of darker cherries, underbrush and barrel lead to a mid weighted wine with a good attack of dark red berry and stone fruits with typical Russian River Valley spice. Oak plays supportive in background, the tannins are well merged, and the finish is intensely fruity. The wine was noticeably more aromatic and flavorful the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 88-89. Reviewed June 5, 2015
