Review: 2006 John Tyler Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Bacigalupi Vineyard


A classically styled pinot, John Tyler comes not from the tenth president of our country but rather from a partnership between John Bacigalupi and Tyler Heck. Here they use Bacigalupi fruit to produce a wine with a big strawberry attack, which quickly gives way to earth, meat, and smoke flavors. A leathery finish belies the initial fruitiness of the wine, adding complexity but indicating, perhaps, its vibrancy may fade too quickly. Interesting wine, but best with food. I’m on the fence with an A- rating.
