93 Points for 2014 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

by: Aileen Niizawa Morris has awarded our 2014 Mossback Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 93 Points, a Gold Medal and an Exceptional rating!

“Garnet color. Bright, fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of cherry-orange jam on dark toast, spicy vanilla toffee, and hint of caramelized bacon with a satiny, bright, medium-to-full body and a tingling, nuanced, medium-long marinated beets, candied yams, chocolate mint, and cedar finish with chewy, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A rather robust and expansive pinot noir with a kaleidoscope of flavors.”
