Wine Details

After 15 minutes in the glass, it’s absolutely erupting with savory aromas of blackberry, plum, raspberry kirsch and licorice. This is a rich, intense, and concentrated expression of Russian River Pinot. The palate is fleshy and ripe, with Cabernet-like backbone and wonderful fruit. A truly phenomenal wine that will drink well now given a bit of air.

Cam Confidential

As I've mentioned before, my favorite opportunity buys are shiners - bottles of wine that have no label on them. Some folks just happen to have a little bit extra out of big vintages like '12/'13/'14, and I was more than happy to scoop these up. Lot 481 is a single vineyard designate wine, saw approximately 50-60% new oak, has already been in bottle for two years, and scored 92 and 93 points from the major publications. It is usually only sold in the producing winery's tasting room for $60, but is available here today for only $24!

Opened first bottle tonight, I was lucky. Got 12 bottles over 2 orders because we could only order 6 at a time. I understand limiting small lots to ensure more customers can sample them but, after tasting this one I do wish I could have ordered more. This has to be the finest Pinot Noir I have ever tasted.

Gentle berries and cherry with a soft finish.

Being sold out is its own reward. This Pinot is the creme de la creme, if I can be permitted a mixed metaphor.

I am generally a bigger red guy. This Pinot has opened my mind to what a truly well done wine can be. This is definitely one to let open up for 30 or 45 minutes. I can honestly say I don't think I've had a more aromatic wine. The front is full of bright fruits but turns quick into a lush full almost cab like structure. Finish was a surprise as it was elegant in fruit and light.
This is another great offering!! i wish I had bought more!!
