2009 Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
The Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir opens slowly with dark fruit like cherry and plum. With more time, the bouquet begins to showcase interesting baking spice and herbal notes which compliment the pure, Russian River fruit. On the palate the wines acidity accentuates the firm tannin evident in clone 667. The result is firm structure and deep, rich fruit like cherry, plum, and black currant. Velvety tannins, sweet oak and black tea add dimension and depth to the fresh berry core creating a luscious yet elegant Pinot Noir.
