2007 Green River Valley – Russian River Valley, CA $35 — Rating 88
Orogeny from the Green River Valley in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma, is a big meaty Pinot Noir. One that we enjoy often. The flavors of dark fruit and spice are nicely balanced when at cellar temperature. Not so balanced if it gets warm. Often we are able to find Orogeny in restaurants at a very reasonable markup. Plus isn’t the word Orogeny just fun to say? Serve with duck or roasted turkey.
