- Bearboat Pinot Noir Russian River 2009 Product #27017 (In Stock)
We don't know much about Bearboat, but they sure do make a nice Russian River Pinot Noir! Made from fruit purchased from various vineyards around the Valley, vinified carefully and then given 10 months in small French oak. The wine shows pretty scents of black cherry with a bit of cassis and toast. In the mouth plenty of stawberry, raspberry and classic Russian River candied cherry fruit are complemented by some nice hints of fresh earth and smoke. The wine is nicely balanced - rich, but good freshness - and shows a pretty note of licorice on the finish. Nice wine, nice value.
