An excellent Pinot Noir from a special vineyard. A deeply textured nose bursting with aromas of ripe cherry, spice and camp smoke. Medium-bodied with hints of jamminess, supple tannins and balanced acidity. Flavors of cherry, strawberry and raspberry with a touch of pepper and spice. Subtle notes of cola in the finish.

2010 Papapietro Perry Nunes Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, CA, $54 – Rating 93

They say wine is grown in the vineyard. It shows with this wine from Fred and Wendy Nunes’s Russian  River terroir-driven Pinot vineyard. Aromas abound of cherry, raspberry and brown baking spices. Juicy acidity and smooth tannins well suited for food pairing, offering flavors of cherry, blueberry, strawberry and spice with definite notes of cinnamon in the long finish. A wine worth pondering.
