Amici Cellars Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2019
93 pts. James Suckling:
“Ripe-plum, red-cherry, pine-cone, cedar and vanilla aromas. Some iodine, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with soft tannins. Gently bitter with a warm, medium finish. Drink now.”
Oh what a pleasing Russian River Valley Pinot! This is the kind of wine that, with every sip, you discover different flavors. Definitely not a boring wine! An absolute joy to drink.
FROM THE WINERY
Sourced from premier vineyards in the heart of Russian River Valley, the 2019 Amici Pinot Noir showcases the classic Russian River Valley characteristics. This medium-bodied wine opens with a long deep nose of strong candied tree fruit and berries. Aromas of dark cherry vanilla tart, black raspberry, rose, and cedar box lead into a savory earth driven palate. On the mouth, ripe summer plum and dark chocolate melt into a savory finish with balance and silk.
The 2019 growing season began with abundant amounts of rainfall, causing the soils to retain moisture throughout the growing season. The long, warm summer saw very few heat events, with some strong foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive balance in fruit development. The relatively mild finish to the white season helped to preserve freshness, strong acidity and created an opportunity for more maturity.
Harvest began about two weeks later than in ’18 and lasted for around 10 days, creating great balance in our finished blend, with some vineyards showing strong complexity and freshness while others added richness in the palate.
