2008 Sequana Sarmento Vineyards Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA, $32 (S) – Rating 92
Sequana Vineyards is a joint venture between Pinot genius James MacPhail (MacPhail Family Wines) and the Hess Collection. Hess let’s James do his Pinot thing and the result is a delicious full bodied Pinot Noir with complex flavors of black cherry, smokiness, spice and plum with even a hint of bacon. Get your lips around anything James MacPhail puts in a bottle.
WOW, this sounds great! Anytime I can drink something that has a bacon flavor, I love it!
