Zoetic Wines 2015 Hop Kiln Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
A good friend to Cellar Angels and generous for allowing us a few cases of her rare wine, Kim Vance of Zoetic Wines has offered her 2015 Pinot Noir. It’s important to note the vineyard source for this fruit. The famed Hop Kiln Vineyard is an ideal growing region for Pinot Noir, ensconced in Russian River Valley literally steps from the rushing waters.
The initial introduction shows a lovely translucent ruby wine in the glass with enticing aromas of fresh cherry and raspberry, violets and cinnamon. Flavors reveal more intensity – Chambord, almond, thyme, orange peel and spice. The finish is pleasantly fruitful with a touch of forest floor.
