This 2005 Russian River Pinot is showing well and was a good match for Coho salmon.
Medium light cherry red, some amber beginning to form at rim. Lifted bouquet of dark cherries, flowers, ginger and a touch of cinnamon. Perfectly ripe but not at all sweet. Pinot fruit on mid-palate, cherries and berries. A slight tannic edge on the finish on the first night, but this fades away with some aeration. Seems perfect for drinking right now.
