2012 Russell Estate Pinot Noir
IN THE GLASS
Garnet color with jewel tone clarity. Strawberry, rhubarb, and dark cherry compote, intertwined with allspice and rich earth.
ON THE PALATE
A deeply structured wine filled with bright red and black fruit followed by hints of hard spices, plum and turned soil. Bright and firm tannins lead to a long seductive finish.
