2014 Benovia La Pommeraie Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc.. Vineyard is located along the Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA and is planted to Dijon clones 777 and “828.” · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is entirely seductive even at this young age with aromas of dark red cherries a a field of Pinot Noir at bloom. Full-bodied and sappy, with flavors of purple and black fruits accented with a touch of oak. Plush, velvety and fruit-driven at this stage with mellow tannins and a bold, intensely fruited finish. The most concentrated wine in the 2014 lineup, yet engaging and balanced. Score: 91-93. Reviewed June 5, 2015
