Russian Hill Estate Winery Pinot Noir Wins Best of Class
Hold the Presses. We told you they were good! The RHEW 2001 Russian River Valley Estate Tara Vineyard has won a Gold Medal and Best of Class Pinot Noir retail price of $25.00 & over at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. MORE->
What I don't understand is that they entered their 2002 Russian River Valley Ellen's Block Syrah in the Syrah competition. It only received a Bronze medal. We all know that its their Top Block wine that would have won that had it been entered. Then again, maybe it was!
But their 2001 pinots have continued to do well with the 2001 Pinot noir, Russian River Valley scoring 91 points: "a lot of interesting, complex flavors", and the 2001 Pinot noir, Sonoma Coast receiving 93 points: "concentrated and complex; has all the lush complex flavors you want" from the PinotReport. Well done!
