Bybee Vineyards and Habitat Sera Russian River Pinot Noir, 2007

 I have had very good experiences with the Pinots of Bybee Vineyards and Habitat, wines made from organic grapes grown sustainably in the Green Valley area of the Russian River.  This is my first taste of Sera, a reserve bottling that lifts my appreciation for this label even higher.

Light ruby, bright and well saturated even out toward the rim. Entrancing aromas from the moment the cork is popped. Cherries, berries, a bit of menthol to lift the smells and flavors. Even better on the palate, if that is possible. This wine just keeps singing all the way down the tongue. Oak is in the background, as it should be, as the delicate, complex fruit flavors carry the message.
