2009 Sonoma Coast Vineyards Pinot Noir, Freestone Hills, Sonoma Coast, CA, $40 (S) – Rating 91
A rubenesque Pinot Noir that exudes character. Rich and round flavors of black cherry, blackberry, rhubarb and hints of cola are highlighted with flavors of spice and pepper. Supple tannins and a touch of acidity compliment the wine. Certainly a Pinot Noir worthy of your attention.
