J Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is smooth and luscious, opening with notes of dark cherry, bramble and spice. On the palate, this Pinot Noir is expansive with flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and cola with a hint of toast. Round, soft tannins lead to a silky, lingering finish.

The pale to medium ruby-purple colored 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was aged for nine months in 38% new French oak. It sings of violets, black tea and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of cranberries, redcurrants and underbrush with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, elegant and wonderfully perfumed in the mouth, it has a finely grained texture and a long, nuanced finish.

Earthy, seductive and soft, this well-made wine offers tones of forest floor, pomegranate and strawberry. It delivers plenty of flavor beneath a delicately crafted body.
