" A pretty good Pinot Noir, not quite up there with J’s vineyard-designated bottlings, but it’s not as expensive. With brisk acidity and black cherry, cola and cedar flavors, it’s made for drinking now." ~SH

" Fresh and vibrant, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit that's straightforward and complex, losing some of its velocity on the finish, where this turns minerally. Drink now through 2017. 12,000 cases made. " ~ JL
" The 2009 J Vineyards Pinot Noir is a lush ruby-red wine that vibrantly showcases its cool-climate Russian River Valley pedigree. Aromas of rich chocolate and wild blackberry fill the glass. The wine delivers flavors of caramel, cinnamon and black spice. Traditional Pinot Noir fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry are also integrated in a subtle oak structure. Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir pairs with many earthy foods, such as grilled Portobello mushrooms, smoked country ham, or savory duck confit braised in this wine." ~ WInery notes
