2010 Russian River Valley Appellation Series Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Floodgate Vineyard
California: Sonoma County: Russian River Valley
Deep scarlet at the center of the glass, transitioning to a slightly rustic red rim.
Aromas of raspberry and boysenberry greet you initially and are quickly trailed by coffee bean, tobacco leaf, freshly fallen leaves, green peppercorn, a touch of toasted oak, and hints of subtle dark baking spices.
Elegant and subdued flavors of sweet plum, black cherry, and raspberry mingle with earthy mushroom, saddle leather, sandalwood, black peppercorn, dark spice, and a note of herbal black tea.
Long and lingering, with juicy dark fruit notes slowly fading and leaving a hint of subtle spice on the tip of the tongue.
Garlic and rosemary rubbed roast chicken.
