Inman Family Russian River Valley 2010 Pinot Noir, $12.79-$27.99, 86 points, was a pomegranate red with a transparent rim.
Smells of black grape skin, orange peel, and plum were interesting and pleasant.
The medium body carried fair acidity and mild tannin, but struck me as rather 'hard' or austere.
Flavors were tart pomegranate and red cherry that trailed long into the finish marked my "green" grape notes and an almost unnoticeable 12.7% alcohol.
