Kanzler Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017 750ml


1 bottle in stock.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Russian River Pinot Noir is complex, multilayered and sure to be a crowd pleasure. It showcases classic Russian River Valley depth, texture and lushness, while also being taunt, elegant and almost weightless on the mid-palate. The wine glides across the palate leaving bursts of fruit, spice, earth and oak that echo into a sustained finish. Most tasting notes were taken after the bottle had been open for about 16 hours and the wine is still developing. Give the 2017s a hearty decant or open the night before enjoying. This wine is a wonderful sipper but during tasting my mind immediately goes to grilled meats cooked on open fire, ideally on the gamey side like leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic; or pork belly with black soy.
