2009 Masut Vineyard and Winery Pinot Noir. Mendocino, CA, $40 (S) – Rating 92
Third generation winemakers Ben and Jake Fetzer’s inaugural effort under the Masut Vineyard label is a winner! Long on finesse and bright fruit with flavors of black cherry, blueberry, ripe cranberry, spice with hints of oaky vanilla. All estate fruit from a 23-acre vineyard, only 800 cases. Ranked #50 on Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 list for 2011.
