David Bruce Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant red fruit with a touch of vanilla and spice on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
More red fruit on the finish with clove and herbs
Always an enjoyable Pinot Noir from David Bruce, this 2006 is aging gracefully and tastes great now. It runs about $40 so it's not an everyday wine, but it elevates a good meal. Pair with a variety of dishes from braised meat to roasted root vegetables.
