Green Meadow Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2007 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting notes:

Aromas of black tea and pomegranate on the nose with a backdrop of black licorice
Lean and subtle on the palate
Cherry layers on the finish with more black licorice

I wrote "interesting" in my notes because this wine drinks more like a Burgundy than a California Pinot Noir. The color is extremely light and it has subtleties of aroma and flavor that take some discerning.

I paid $20 on sale, marked down from $24. If this sounds like your style of Pinot, give it a shot. And raise a glass!
