(Sonoma County) Lovely open Pinot nose, fruits and flowers, touch of game. Superb. Great presence in the mouth. Natural flavours, well captured. Drink 2007-10.
From the best part of Sonoma's Russian River Don Miguel Vineyard, Marimar Torres' wine has a deep black cherry colour, intense summer berries fruit, spice from 80% new French oak, already smoothly approachable, the velvety structure and ripe tannins will keep it improving for a decade.
