Ramey Wine Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

$49.95

A wonderful Pinot Noir from Ramey - limited. Ramey's 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is one of our favorite Pinots from the 2016 vintage. 93 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "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." 93 Points Robert Parker: "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."

Middle of the road Pinot for me. Nice overall mouthfeel and balance, nothing extraordinary jumping out.

We had the 2016 Vintage on 9/1/19. An unmistakable RRV PN. The bouquet of red fruit and cardomom. The palate of raspberry, rhubarb, and spice are classic and delicious. This is a good medium bodied wine.
