Reviews For This Wine

Sweet red currants, cinnamon sticks, plum, Christmas cake, and allspice jump from the medium ruby/garnet colored 2006 Pinot Noir Rio Vista. This wine has tart acidity, plenty of body, and again, seems to offer intriguing spice box aromatics and medium to full-bodied flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Great example of Cali Pinot...primary but gorgeous fruit and acidity on day 1...saved a split for day 2--> even better; now has a complexity and smoothness that really displays its pedigree well(94).

very nice burgundian style effort. Nice nose with a little barnyard. Lots of cherry cola flavors with a bumpy transition to the finish which is quite nice. However, the price point is a bit high.
