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.
"Good bright red. Blueberry, blackberry, licorice, minerals and menthol on the nose, with a peppery, herbal coolness. Then big, ripe and dense, with a sappy, chewy quality to the soil-driven flavors of dark cherry, spices and underbrush. Nicely vibrant, dry, persistent wine with a peppery spice element lifting the finish. I'd give this a year or two in the cellar before pulling the cork.
