Cherry Pie Huckleberry Snodgrass Pinot Noir 2014
Capturing the Russian River Valley’s racier side with wild strawberry, fresh fig and crisp rhubarb with touches of cinnamon and nutmeg. Lifted red fruits dominate the nose and carry onto the palate, where ripe raspberry, vanilla and cola evolve into bramble and compote. On the finish, juiciness is cut by a clean, bracing acidity, with tart cherry, cranberry and rhubarb leaf that linger for ages.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014s, which will be released next year, all look strong and of similar quality to their 2013 counterparts. The fruit is ripe, the texture is terrific and they are gorgeous Pinot Noirs, but more on them when we get closer to release date.
Wine EnthusiastFrom a vineyard site close to the Pacific Ocean, this bombastically rich wine is hard to resist, with its supple rose and lavender notes that grow more powerful on the palate. It leads with fleshy strawberry flavors, augmenting its ripeness with cardamom and chocolate touches.
Wine SpectatorStarts out supple and elegant, building to a focused beam of plum, blackberry, black olive and loganberry flavors. Gains momentum and persistence on the long, layered finish.
