Ramey Wine Cellars, 2015 Ramey Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

"The appellation 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a head turner and boasts fabulous notes of black cherries, wild strawberries, smoked earth, and forest floor. It’s another classic, medium-bodied, perfectly balanced effort from this estate that doesn’t put a foot wrong. It too will keep for a decade or more."

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is medium ruby-purple colored with quite a broody/earthy nose to begin, with notions of baked cherries and black raspberries followed up by truffles, underbrush, mossy bark and ceps plus a waft of tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives a taut frame of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, supporting the generous earth-laced fruit and finishing long."

"Sourced from Bucher Vineyard on Westside Road and Platt Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast, this wine is light-bodied and fresh on the palate, offering baked raspberry, cardamom, clove and forest flavors. —V.B."
