The 2009 Fogdog Pinot Noir is loaded with vibrant red fruit, tangerine peel, wild chanterelle mushrooms and crushed violet aromas. It has great energy, given its freshness and lively acidity, and simply bursting with red raspberry, plump red cherry and rhubarb. During the Fogdog selection process, we look for wines that boast expressive, wild fruit characteristics in addition to texture and acidity that are approachable upon release without extended bottle aging.
"Distinctly Sonoma Coast in the forest berry fruits and feral, earthy notes of anise, balsam and Dr. Pepper cola. Fine and silky in the mouth, with modest alcohol and a burst of cool-climate acidity. A more feminine style of Pinot, which is not to understate its power. Could easily develop over the next six years, but it’s pretty compelling now."
"A very pretty and highly perfumed nose of red
and dark berry fruit aromas that are beautifully nuanced by hints of spice that lead to delicious and solidly concentrated middle
weight flavors that possess a silky texture, all wrapped in a dusty, balanced, mouth coating and lingering finish. Lovely."
