Arista Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has a smoky, savory nose: woodsmoke, pipe tobacco, smoked meat and turned earth over a core of ripe red and black cherries and berries. Light to medium-bodied with good fruit purity in the mouth, it offers tons of savory layers along with firm, grainy tannins and great freshness to lift the long, flavorful finish. 1,286 cases produced.
Ripe and contoured, with hoisin sauce notes to the baked cherry, blackberry and plum tart flavors. Cocoa powder and graphite accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,286 cases made.
