Frei Bros. Pinot Noir "Russian River" Reserve 2006 wine review by (PB)
A beautiful pomegranate color with delicate strawberry and raspberry bouquet; in the mouth it is slightly tart with bready, slightly sweet fruit and a layer of milk chocolate trying to reveal itself. Finishing with a considerable bacon/smoke finish.
With a little air time, there is a touch of licorice with sweet berry fruit; this is a nearly elegant wine but then that tends to "Pinot Noir!" This wine stops just shy of elegant at "classy." This wine was a gift to me by my wife. A nice choice so raise a glass. Comes in around the $30 price point.
