2016 Moshin Vineyards Pinot Noir, Calliope Vineyard, Russian River Valley

"The 2016 is very distinct in character (black tea, cherry, raspberry, blueberry, rose petal) - indeed a classic RRV Pinot Noir. It is supple, full and beautifully balanced with a long, persistent finish." 5 Stars

2018 Moshin Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir
PINOT VALUE GLASS: Signifies a very good/exceptional wine that's reasonably priced for the quality

"Light pink color in the glass. Nicely scented with aromas of strawberry, blood orange and rose petal. Bright, crisp and tasty, with refreshing flavors of red cherry, strawberry, watermelon and a hint of orange, finishing upbeat and quenching."

2016 Moshin Vineyards Rosalina Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
PINOT GEEK: Signifies an exceptional wine of great breeding and a highly recommened purchase

"Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Provocative aromas of Bing cherry, baking spices and bark. Quintessential Russian River Valley flavor profile of black cherry, cola, spice and a touch of toasty oak. Easily approachable, with a soft, dreamy texture and gracious tannins. Plenty of charm, with juicy cherry fruit fanning out on the lip-smacking finish."

2016 Moshin Vineyards River Myst Haven Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
"Aromas of black cherry, fertile earth and savory herbs. Good energy and balance in a middleweight style, featuring flavors of cherry, raspberry, boysenberry, white pepper and savory herbs. A healthy tannic backbone is supportive. Barrel treatment is well managed and the wine finishes with some persistence." 

2015 Moshin Vineyards Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
"Aromas of black fruits and muddy earth lead to a mid weight styled wine featuring flavors of blackest cherry, black currant and blackberry. Nicely composed, with a silken mouthfeel, agreeable tannins, and a delectable, black cherry-infused finish that is very long and intense."
