Stewart Pinot Noir 2008 750ml

Stewart Pinot Noir

2008 in the Russian River Valley was a trying year for Pinot Noir growers, with spring frosts thatreduced the size of the crop throughout the appellation. Ripening was slow and required great careat harvest. Proper attention to details allowed the naturally small crop to make rich, bright wine withimpressive density and depth of fruit flavors. This wine is medium dark purple in color with a touch ofruby. The aroma opens with berry and dark cherry notes backed by toasty French oak. Hints of savoryherb notes emerge with air, along with subtle whiffs of cinnamon and vanilla. The wine is rich andround in the mouth with big black cherry and raspberry flavors at first and just enough balancing freshacidity. Subtle underlying oak emerges with a bit of earth in the finish, leaving an overall impression ofdense, ripe fruit with complexity and silky texture just waiting for a few years in the bottle.
