Benovia 2014 Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
Connoisseurs' Guide 91 Rating
Very much in the juicy family fold and rife with fully ripe cherries, Benovia's Russian River Valley appellation bottling is far from a lesser, abbreviated version of its more expensive, single-vineyard companions, and, if perhaps not quite as complex, it hits the mark for richness, varietal definition and fruity depth with authority. It is at once impressively extracted and relatively accessible even as it hints that it will improve with age, and, as deeply satisfying as it is, it earns an extra round of applause for outstanding value.
