J Vineyards & Winery Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||J Vineyards & Winery|
This smooth wine offers a moderate weight and polished tannins that carry deep notes of forest floor, black tea and a layering of red fruit. Crisp on the finish, it nicely represents the appellation and vintage.
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley jumps from the glass with exuberant notes of ripe redcurrants, pomegranate and raspberry coulis with hints of violets, dark chocolate and mossy tree bark. Medium-bodied, refreshing and elegant in the mouth, it delivers lovely red berry and earthy layers with very fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed. 9,200 cases were made.
