CIRQ "Russian River" Pinot Noir 2017 (Russian River Valley, CA)

93PTS W.S.

Winery Tasting Notes: From several different vineyards, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has a gregarious nose of blackberry jam, underbrush, tar, oodles of ripe red berries, potpourri, black tea leaves and a very spicy undercurrent—lush, deep and still very youthful. Medium to full-bodied, it explodes in the mouth with loads of spicy ripe fruits firmly knit by grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and flavorful. This is a big, powerful and delicious expression, a Pinot with so much stuffing. This will be released in the fall of 2020.

AROMATICS: Freshly picked raspberries, wild strawberries, touches of bright cherry, crunchy red fruits and baking spice. A hint of nutmeg and star anise combined with notes of all spice and a sprinkle of morning rain.

FLAVORS: Ripe plum, pomegranate and rhubarb-strawberry pie …unbaked with some “razzle- dazzle”. A slight hint of earthy tones and fresh forest floor, softened with a pretty ocean breeze.

MOUTHFEEL: Clean lines, with minerality down the center, rests nicely and persists throughout, surrounded by crunchy fruits and elegant, yet firm tannins.

Wine Spectator, 93 Points: “Powerful and well-structured, with pomegranate flavors that feature notes of iron, smoke and dried berry, backed by taut tannins. The savory finish is filled with dried cooking spice accents. Drink now through 2025. 950 cases made."
