Wine Tasting Notes
This almost textbook vintage provided the raw materials to produce a truly outstanding Benovia Russian River Pinot Noir. Aromas are clearly dominated by bright red fruit tones of Bing cherry and red raspberry, while black fruits dominate on the palette. The bright aromas expand and give way to sour cherry and candied orange peel. On the palate the wine's juicy mouthfeel is supported by centered acidity building with intensity through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. Tannins are beautifully proportioned and provide backbone to the wines sweet middle and delicate earthy finish.
