Lot 428
2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Simply the best Pinot Noir we've sourced to date.
Beautiful, sweet florals are backed by copious cherry and boysenberry with hints of cola, cinnamon and vanilla from a generous new oak regimen. Deep and rich across the palate, the wine has a tremendous yet beautifully balanced fruit impact, with hints of earth in the mid-palate. Excellent length on the finish, with a persistent core of fruit that lingers for minutes, not seconds.

Style: Medium, Fruity

Flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Oak

Cam Confidential
This Russian River Pinot is a cuvée of six different vineyards, each of which fetches between $60 and $80 per bottle. The producer simply had a little bit more than they felt they needed, and we were the lucky recipients.
