Landy Family Vineyards
Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA
From internationally recognized winemaker Paul Hobbs comes this truly exceptional Pinot Noir that was clearly made with care and attention to detail. Elegant and restrained, this mysterious, feminine wine gives the impression there is more to be discovered with each sip. Aromas of dusty raspberries, violets and ripe cherries blend seamlessly with notes of damp earth, leather and a hint of minerality. On the palate this Pinot Noir has a silky texture and excellent balance. Flavors of black tea, cola and game balance well with cedar, vanilla and clove. The finish is long and luxurious with a streak of minerality rounding it out. This is a wine meant to be thoughtfully consumed in order to fully appreciate its beauty.
