This Pinot Noir was harvested in Redwood Valley, Mendocino in late September of 09. It was aged in small neutral oak barrels for 9 months. Aromas were pretty layered with cherry, spice, and pepper. Flavors included cherry, spice, a very light oak, and plum. It exhibited a light body, soft tannins, and a nice lengthy finish. Very subtle complexity. It began like a Burgundy, fooling you into thinking it was fermented in stainless steel, but the oak got you on the finish. This was a really good Pinot. $22
