2017 Davis Bynum Pinot Noir Russian River
Winemaker Notes: Red cherry and plum aromas with spicy floral and subtle oak lead to a rich mouthful of fruit flavors and velvety tannins with vibrant acidity and berry fruit on the finish. Grilled salmon, portobello mushrooms, lamb shanks, spinach salad and medium to sharp cheeses would all be beautifully paired with this Pinot Noir.
Wine & Spirits - "Greg Morthole sourced fruit for this 2017 from vineyards in the Santa Rosa plain, the Middle Reach of the Russian River and Green Valley. Some of the fruit also came from an estate vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. Those varied sites provided enough generous fruit flavor to balance the wine’s brighter notes of sassafras and earthy notes of roots. It’s a clean, fragrant and spicy pinot noir to pour with grilled pork. Best Buy"
Wine Enthusiast - "Thick, tannic and generous in oak, this is hearty, full-bodied red from a mix of vineyards in the appellation. Bright threads of orange, strawberry and dried herb pepper the core, which leads to a luxuriously opulent finish."
