Sonoma Cutrer Grower Vintner Pinot Noir 2008, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
$30.95 at LCBO.
Remarkable Pinot! This is really Burgundian wine with Californian spirit.
Garnet color on the core, pinkish on the rim. Semi opaque, bright.
On the nose first-red berries and fruit, then earth, forest, barn notes. Next day-very floral.
On the palate- dry, very soft. With first sip-lot's of cherries. Medium body, nice, fresh acidity, medium tannins.
Finish is long and fruity.
Good with cheese, good with meat.
