#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
The 2007 Trolley Pinot Noir is a focused and pure Sonoma Coast gem. Rich yet balanced, it layers the mouth with savory black cherry cobbler, sassafras and forest morels. The aroma offers heady notes of wild sage and dew covered California cedar. Authenticity in a bottle.
"Focused on a core of black cherry and blackberry fruit that's medium- to full-bodied, complex and spicy. Smooth-textured, with a long finish. Drink now through 2014. 733 cases made."
"Bright red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, cherry compote, anise and minerals. Sweet cherry and berry flavors are complicated by succulent herbs and candied flowers, which gain strength with air. Becomes sweeter and spicier on the finish, with the cherry and floral notes echoing. This carries 14.5% alcohol but doesn't come off as heavy.
