Central Coast:: 2011 Pinot Noir
Plum, pomegranate, pink rose petal, boysenberry and the slightest hint of watermelon candy dance from this 2011 Central Coast Pinot Noir. It’s full of boysenberry and spicy cherries jubilee character with nice brightness and delightful flavors of black raspberry and sweet oak. A bit of tartness accents the soft, flowing texture and lively finish.
"The 2010 Pinot Noir is gorgeous. There is an immediacy to the fruit that is quite striking. Juicy dark berries, flowers and spices flesh out on the inviting finish. This isn't as compelling as the 2009, but it is awfully close. The only problem with the 2010 is going to be finding it, as production is down a whopping 50%. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018." - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate, 91 points
