WTN: 2009 DeBiase Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

by JC (NC) » Thu Jan 31, 2013 2:30 am

14.4% abv. Very fruity with a profile that falls on the raspberry/cherry spectrum leaning more towards raspberry in my judgment. Silky and chewy at the same time. It has lipsmacking qualities. It doesn't come across as too alcoholic. Quite delicious. It wakes up the taste buds.

He makes nice wines. I still have a few bottles. Unfortunately I forgot to order his most recent offering.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

David, I saw your note (on WB or CellarTracker?) I bought two bottles of this basic RRV bottling and two bottles of the 2009 Fritschen Vineyard, RRV, CA Pinot Noir through Westgate Wines in Raleigh. I haven't opened the single-vineyard Pinot yet but may go back for more of the Russian River Valley one.
