Arista Winery
Pinot Noir

2006 Longbow Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley

This blend is our winemaker's selection of select vineyard blocks and specifically chosen coopers. From year to year the individual lots that make up this wine might change but the style remains the same: rich and lifted aromatics, dense and focused flavors and broad, velvety textures. Aromatically, the wine begins with clear, concentrated notes of ripe cherry and dark berries. On the nose, the fruit elements combine with hints of smoke and sandalwood. The palate opens with ripe cherry and plum. Similar to the nose there is a suggestion of blood orange in the background. Immediately, the texture of the wine is evident. Broad, velvety layers coat the palate and intensify the finish. This wine will age gracefully over the next 5-7 years. If you'd like to enjoy this wine sooner, decant for 45 minutes before serving.
