|DAVE UMINO IN HIS VINEYARD|
On the nose I get beautiful and delicious red raspberry pie and cream aromas, toast, sandalwood, mineral, strawberry preserves, white pepper, and cherry cola notes. This wine really expresses the best of the Russian River Valley and all the big and voluptuous red fruit character that Pinot's can exude from this area of the world. Savory......umami
On the palate this wine is exactly what I have come to expect from the wines made by Bill Hunter, that is wines that are pure, fruit driven, intense, delineated, and just plain delicious. I get savory and delicious flavors of fresh red raspberries, tangy bing cherry pie filling, crushed rock, wild strawberries eaten with some of their leaves still on, cranberry sauce, and blood orange.
This wine is definitely on my list of favorites and is stunning Pinot Noir with all the purity, length, and deliciousness required. 95 Points
