Wine Tasting Notes Mossback Pinot Noir is a blend of Russian River Valley fruit sourced from growers that winemaker Dan Cederquist has worked with for decades. These are the best grapes purchased from the best farmers from Dans many years of winemaking in the Russian River. This Pinot Noir packs complex aromas of lavender, red berries, black tea and freshly picked wild mushrooms. Bright flavors of cranberry and raspberry combine with barrel spice and a little leather. It is a seductive wine, medium bodied with a long finish. Pair it with grilled salmon, pork loin or seared duck with cherry sauce.
