2008 Russian River, CA (s) $35 – $75 — Rating 93
The 2008 offering is even better than the wonderful 2007 . This Pinot Noir is approachable from the time the cork pops and is an excellent food pairing wine. Don Blackburn said about Emeritus, “It won’t be a wine that will try to knock your socks off, but a wine instead, that will attempt to seduce you, and make you glad that it did.” Let this beauty seduce you. Emeritus Pinot is normally only found in restaurants ($70-$75) but can be found at Internet retailers for $35-$40.
