Rhys Alesia "Green Valley" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Cola, herbs and black fruit greets the nose, this is a bit beefy and Syrah like with a popery edge. Extracted in the mouth with a little sweetness and a little alcohol throwing things out of balance. Seems like the fruit is fading leaving behind alcohol and oak. 83pts
