Deep red with purple hues.
Ripe dark fruits with a raspberry leaf lift complemented by subtle spice and savoury notes.
A mouth filling medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a palate showing black currant and black cherry with hints of ripe raspberry and redcurrant. This wine has a soft, full palate, well balanced acidity and supple tannins. A well integrated mixture of new and older French oak provides rich, savoury notes on the palate with a full, persistent finish.
"Raspberry, cherry and strawberry flavors have a nice tang to them, with peppery, spicy hints and fresh thyme details on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made."
"Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, Saint Clair’s 2009 Pinot Noir has intense cranberry, raspberry and dried herb aromas with a whiff of moss covered logs. Medium to full bodied with a medium level of finely grained tannins, good concentration of juicy berry fruit and refreshing acid, the finish is long and cherry-laced. Drinking now it should keep to 2014.
The Wine Advocate
"Sweet strawberry-rhubarb flavors round out this simple, clean pinot noir. It shows more warmth of alcohol than flavor depth, ready for a roast beef sandwich."
