WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Made in a full-bodied style, this estate wine is generous in blackberry, black licorice and dark cherry, with classic cola spice dancing around its edges.

Winemakers Notes - "The 2013 J Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a well-balanced, food-friendly wine with bright berry flavors – red cherry, raspberry and blackberry – with hints of licorice and red zinger tea on the finish. The aromas of wild strawberries and spices delight the nose. This approachable wine pairs well with mushroom risotto, cedar plank salmon and Bouillabaisse seafood stew." 14.3% ABV.
