The 2015 Pinot Noir Russian River from Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards is medium-plus-bodied, dry red with an addictive nose of baked cherry cobbler, ripe red plum, crushed raspberry, nutmeg, cinnamon and earthy floral, savoury spice flavours on the palate. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is well-known for its plum, dark cherry, plum and spicy cedary flavours on the palate. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair it with roast pheasant.

Pinot Noir food pairings: cedar-planked salmon, gourmet pizza, lamburgers, roast chicken.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

The 2015 Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has the telltale flavours of plushy plum, dark cherry the valley is well-known for with a little more earthy notes, bright raspberry and cake spice flavours on the palate. Smooth, lush and with chewy tannins and great acidity for food. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair with grilled rack of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews
