Fresh focused fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry, and plum are followed by hints of violet, spice, mineral, and pepper. This wine offers crisp acidity upon entry unfolding with juicy flavors of strawberry, raspberry, black fruits and leather. The 2007 vintage offers intense fruit flavors on the mid palate. Tannins are supple creating a lingering finish with cola and smokiness.
"The Flowers team blends this from estate fruit grown on the far coast around Fort Ross with selected lots from vineyards in the Russian River Valley, consistently producing one of the most graceful pinot noirs in the New World. In 2007, the wine has a brisk, foresty scent, bright red fruit in the middle and delicacy to the tannic weave. Hints of black tea, pink grapefruit, cranberry and salt all contribute to the complexity. The flavors are saturated while the wine remains transparent. Completely satisfying, this is a wine to buy by the case. "
