Moving to the reds, the 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers a light ruby/purple color as well as complex notes of kirsch, black raspberries, garrigue, and spice. Ramey has started using a touch of whole cluster and this was 75% destemmed, with that touch of stems adding a certain complexity and attractive herbal note. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate, it will keep for a decade.
The 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was aged for 14 months in 49% new French oak. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the nose gives warm potpourri, cinnamon stick and autumn leaves scents with classic notes of cola and smoke over a core of warm cranberry sauce, blueberry compote and red cherry preserves. Light to medium-bodied, the palate offers concentrated red and black fruits with great layers of spice and earthy nuances. It has a soft frame of structuring tannins and vibrant acidity, finishing very long and layered. (EB)
The 2016 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Bright red berry fruit, floral notes, earthiness and gamy notes all fill out in this fleshy, racy Pinot Noir. The inclusion of 25% whole clusters adds brightness, but the 2016 is done in the juicy, giving style that is a Ramey signature with Pinot. (AG)
Dark, brooding black fruit and strong tannin greet a rich, interwoven palate of full-bodied ripeness and cola in this lush red wine. The grapes are sourced from the warmer reaches of the appellation and show deep concentration lifted by moderate acidity. (VB)
