Thumbprint Cellars-Schneider Vineyards-Pinot Noir-Russian River Valley-California-2007-  $19.99-Nice nose of cherry, flowers, great Pinot Noir color where you can see your fingers through the wine glass.  A nice flavor of cherry, butterscotch, cocoa, rich balanced finish.  A great smooth Pinot at this price, has complexity of a $35 Pinot, 2nd time I have tried this past year with similar results..   Very cool label design.           NR           CR-4-4.5    Good with pasta, seafood,  chicken.
