Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Tasting Help

scfinson | May 29, 2009 04:14 PM

Looking for Pinot Noir tastings spots. We do not care for the new trend in >14% alcohol fruit bomb Pinots. We like our Pinot to taste like classic Pinot Noir and not Syrah or Zinfandel. I am of the generation that learned to love Pinot Noir by drinking Burgundies. I used to be able to buy RRV Pinots that were light and elegant with the fruit and earth tastes in balance. I find it difficult to find that style in CA anymore. Want to give RRV a chance while I visit in July. My favorite wine shop is Kermit Lynch in Berkeley if that helps define my needs a little. Thanks.
