La Rue Pinot Noir, the NEXT Romanee Conti from California!

La Rue Wines

La Rue is an up and coming winery that I was introduced to recently, and after tasting through this wine I was sold! The grapes are sourced from three stunning Sonoma Coast properties (all of which are sources for some great wineries).

This wine is intensely aromatic. I t has aromas of cranberry and cream that evolve into cola and black tea and blueberry.  Subtle barrel notes of cinnamon and nutmeg round off the aroma. The mouthfeel is lush with the  right amount fruit and acid carrying the mid-palate. This wine has a solid structure with a clean, creamy vanilla finish.
