A seductive, luscious Pinot Noir in the making is the 2007 Pinot Noir Russian River. The good news is that there are 2,700 cases of this wine, which exhibits sweet plum and black cherry notes intermixed with forest floor, cloves, and spice. The wine is rich, fresh, medium to full-bodied, and long. This is a blend of five or so vineyards, and also a blend of not only Dijon clone material but also old California heritage clones such as the Martini, Calera, and Swan. This wine should drink nicely for 4-5 years.

Offers a rich, concentrated core of spicy berry, black cherry and plum. Full-bodied, this is a touch raw and tannic midpalate, but still where you'd want a wine this age to be. Most impressive on the long, lingering finish.

Not that impressive, especially given reputation and cost point. Perhaps a bad bottle, but a bit weak and with some of the same fishy notes I detect in cheap reds...

Can't imagine it being any better. Dark, plum, cassis, lots of fruit and long on the legs.
