EnRoute Winery Les Pommiers Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

$64.99

EnRoute was founded by the family of partners of Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel. Their journey to find the best place to make the Pinot Noir of their dreams culminates at last in EnRoute: Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Extremely Limited. En Route 2016 "Les Pommiers" Pinot Noir draws its name from the apple orchards emblematic of the Russian River Valley's agricultural history. At once elegant and intense, Les Pommiers is the consummate blend of fruit from our vineyards located primarily in the Green Valley and upper Middle Reach areas of the Russian River Valley AVA. Our grapes are farmed according to organic principles and minimally handled at the winery. The wine is deftly shaped with a subtle combination of new and once-used French oak barrels. Les Pommiers captures aromatics of wild raspberry, black cherry, plum and floral notes that yield to mineral, spice and toasty oak. It has a juicy, coating entry, followed by more layers of raspberry and cherry fruit, and ripe, integrated tannins.

I remember drinking this wine a few years ago and when thinking back, it feels like the newer vintages have upped their ripeness and extraction. This was quite dense with rich fruit and spice...crunchy cranberry, pomegranate, and black peppercorn aromatics. The front palate is loaded but fades a touch to where the finish is a bit thin. On the palate there is a lot of potpourri and spicy rhubarb pie wrapped in black cherries. Not much acidity. I’d drink these fairly early.

This is 3rd time in a month that we experienced EnRoute. Nice consistent offering. Standard Pinot flavors with some butterscotch added on the finish. Love that kind of finish.

A medium ruby. Strawberry nose. Slight perfume. Red licorice, plum, cranberry, with a nice balanced approach. Mid-palette finish.

Cherry and cranberry on the nose. Big ripe cherry, cedar, vanilla, nice acidity, soft tannins. Nice finish. Seems fruit is a bit more ripe than previous vintages.

Fairly ripe and extracted vision of RRV PN. Fruit fwd but not overblown in the least. Made well but not really my jam at 14.5%. A lot of people like this style tho. Red fruits and root beer. Decant, smoke a big doob, and pair with a big ass pot roast and some taters for a good time

Just ok lacks character and a sense of place. Perhaps raspberry and some dark berries a little cooked. Spicy.
