David Bruce Russian River Pinot Noir 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Plum and chocolate cream nose
Very smooth and velvety on the palate
Rich, smooth finish, with some cherry to layer

This is a delicious Pinot Noir from a winery that does the grape justice. It costs approximately $40 and is well-priced when compared to Burgundy of similar quality. The wine is so smooth that it coats the mouth like fine melted chocolate. I recommend this wine as a very good example of California Pinot Noir. For your friends who think this varietal is quirky and elusive, this will set them straight. Enjoy and raise a glass!
