Raeburn Winery, Russian River Valley (Sonoma County, California) Pinot Noir 2019

($25):  A whiff of savory notes peek out from the ripe Sonoma fruit lending intrigue to this Pinot Noir.  A touch of heat and sweetness in the finish reflects the stated 14.5 percent alcohol.  Mild tannins allow you to enjoy it with grilled salmon. Indeed, it’s soft profile also allows you to partake of it while you grill that salmon.  It’s a good buy, given the prices for Pinot Noir.
