Castle Rock Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Petite Sirah 2005 review by (PB)
Dark black cherry hue with sweet ripe cherry bouquet with dark extracted black cherry fruit.
Palate--Velvety tannins, drinking well now and will hold another couple years. This is a rich wine yet a bit thin where it counts--flavor; but it isn't bad especially for the price of $10. Finishes quickly but safe enough and not a bad representation of the grape. Raise a glass.
