2008 Twomey Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

he most open and evolved of Twomey's 2008 Pinot Noirs, this Russian River Valley ruby red beauty surprises with sunny orange peel on the nose opening up to ripe cherries. Soft with a zing on the front of the palate, opening up to berries and balanced acidity. Finish with a soft yet zingy finish. A perfect balance of yin and yang. Sister winery of Napa Valley's Silver Oak, Twomey Cellars is located in Calistoga. Read more at Another Wine Blog.

2007 Freeman Akiko’s Cuvee Pinot Noir, Sonoma

Elegant and sophisticated, this wine takes a bit of coaxing to open up. Patience rewards with a nose of luscious ripe plums and dark berries with a sassafras twist. The color is a vivid shade of red. Supple on the palate, warm musk complements the deep fruit, with a tingle of cola on the end. Hints of rose petals taper to a lingering finish. A more detailed review about this wine and the winery is available here on Another Wine Blog.

Ottimino 2006 Zinfinity

Ottimino's Zinfinity comes after establishing a reputation for Zin. The wine has a dark fruit with vanilla hint taste with plenty of 20 months in French Oak for pretty big tannins on the finish. The alcohol is a suprisingly low 13.9 percent. A nice wine at the price point that will hold up with most foods.
