The wine that keeps on giving

Small Vines, Russian River Valley, Pinot Noir 2006 This is a wine of dense concentration from biodynamically farmed grapes. Upon first pouring the nose is quite tight so give it some time to open. The mouth is packed with red fruit flavors, framed by ample acidity and amplified by a little warmth – truly a wine of great density and length. This is the antithesis of thin and flabby Pinot. The wine spent 15 months in oak, 50% of which was new – only 375 cases produced. Proprietors Paul and Kathryn Sloan. P&B in Sebastopol 14.3% $50 at the winery Small Vines
