2017 Flowers Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1437811 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Exotic aromas of ripe strawberries and orange peel with hints of foie gras and crushed stone. Full-bodied, dense and tight with firm and chewy tannins that are slightly austere,providing form and structure. Give this time to soften, but it already shows energy. Drink after 2021. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aged in about 20% new oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is pale to medium ruby with a nose of pomegranate, cranberry and rhubarb with warm wild blackberries, graphite, smoke, dried tea leaves and flowers with hints of cinnamon stick and orange peel. Light to medium-bodied, it's silky—soft but strong—with a good core of spicy fruits, juicy acidity and a long, spice-laced finish. Drink through 2027. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich and plush, with floral notes to the ripe dark plum and wild berry flavors. Medium-grained tannins show on finish, which is filled with decadent Asian spice details. (KM) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is another delicious appellation-level Pinot from Flowers. Dark cherry, plum, hard candy and spice are pushed forward, showing that extra touch of juiciness that is so typical of Russian River Pinots. All the elements fall into place in an impeccably balanced wine that will drink well upon release. Drink through 2027. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)
