Winemakers Notes - Our 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir has a vibrant blood-red rose color and a deep, brooding nose of boysenberries, potpourri, black truffle and violets. On the palate, the attack is fruit-sweet and broad and immediately evolves to a silky expression of huckleberry fruit and dried flowers. The finish is elegant, long and classically Pinot Noir.
As Reviewed by the Price of Pinot - Darker fruited and more intense on the nose with a complementary note of spice, dried rose petals, and oak, opening slowly over time in the glass. The most generously flavored wine in the lineup with a core of juicy cherry pie filling and dark berry flavors accented by notes of dried herbs, vanilla and burnished oak, leaving the crisp flavor of cherry skins in its wake on the finish. A seamless wine with moderately firm tannins and well proportioned acidity. Very good (+).
