The 2008 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Noir comes from one of the smallest appellations in Sonoma County — Green Valley of Russian River Valley. An area known for producing some of California’s finest Pinot Noirs, this appellation is characterized by its cool, foggy climate and fine, sandy loam “Goldridge” soils that are distinctive to this area. Delicious aromas of rhubarb, black cherry, raspberry, cola, cinnamon and rose are complemented by strawberry, vanilla and cream flavors. Rich yet delicate, bright acidity greets you on the palate, while soft tannins with caramel and toasted oak round out the finish.
