2011 Cartograph Wines Floodgate Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, CA, $40 – Rating 92

Very limited production of 225 cases. This single vineyard Pinot is just coming into it’s own. A fun nose of baked cherry and spice with notes saddle leather. A round mouth-feel with balanced acidity and soft tannins showing flavors of red cherry, raspberry and a touch of blueberry. As the wine opens a bit of earthiness in the finish adds complexity.
