The 2018 Annabella Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a dark and compelling example of Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley. The nose is rich with spicy black mission fig, black plum, and a hint of sweet and dried hay. In the mouth, the softness of the wine is met with densely perfumed complex dark aromas of black fig, coffee, cocoa powder, and oak toast. The finish is lengthy and carries the barrel spices of clove and nutmeg.
Enjoy this striking Pinot Noir with smokey barbecued chicken, served with sautÃ©ed wild mushrooms and polenta.
